DermTech (NASDAQ:DMTK) is thinly traded but it exploded on Tuesday, up 2.99, or 23%, to 15.99, just one cent of the 16.00 high, on 142,636 shares traded. Even though it traded 142,636, that is a lot of volume for this stock. There’s some resistance up where it might be a target up another 4 points near 20.
Inovio Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INO) exploded and was a great day trade on Tuesday, jumping 3.06, or 69.7%, to 7.45, only 3 cents of the session high at 7.48, on 107.2 million shares traded. From the get-go, it ran up, coiled all morning, by mid-afternoon it started to ramp up, we followed it all the way up from 5 to the close, and within an hour of that it was all the way up to 9.00, came down, retested, making a nominal new high at 9.15. Targets for Wednesday are 9 3/4 and 10 1/2.
Ocular Therapeutix (NASDAQ:OCUL) also exploding, gaining 77 cents, or 16.42%, to 5.46, after closing at the session high at 5.82, or 2.2 million shares traded, and then in after-hour gaining another 33 cents, or 6.04%, to 5.79. Right now, it’s up near key resistance. If it gets through here, it might ramp to the near-term targets at 6 3/4 and 7 1/2. It does have a nice up-channel.
SpringWorks Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SWTX) exploded for 7.55, or 22.43%, to 41.21, to 312,425 shares traded. It’s thinly traded but did breakout out to session highs at 41.96. Perhaps it will follow through to the mid-40’s going forward.
Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ:WIFI) popped sharply for 2.14, or 18%, to session highs at 14.99, before pulling back and closing up 14.04, on 5.2 million shares traded, and another 67 cents in after-hours, taking it up another 67 cents, or 4.77%, to 14.71. That’s the biggest volume I’ve seen on this stock in a year and a half, which may mean it is going to extend. If it can get through the declining topsline, we’re looking at a stock that might be a 20-dollar stock.
Beyond Air (NASDAQ:XAIR) has been ramping big time, and has gone from 5 1/2 to 10.88 in the last week and a half. On Tuesday, it popped 1.01, or 10.77%, to 10.39, after reaching a session high of 10.86, just 2 cents of muli-week highs at 10.88, on 823,780 shares traded. It has had big volume in the last two days, with a breakout above 10.39, which back in 2017 tagged 10. Tuesday it closed above that, so it may very well extend, but it is overbought short-term. Keep an eye on it.
