    • My best guess- Doctors would have been impressed if attending the Obesity Week conference last week. It could have been anybody not wanting to waste time saving 10 cents/share, just want their orders filled. (NOTE: The daytraders have left by that time of day, so others, swing traders, HF machines, etc, then take over. The accumulating daytraders had been filling a gap most of the day, that activity preventing the others from taking price up until those traders had left. Daytraders method to reduce their risk is to close out each night the non-accumulating part of their positions, probably before the last 15-30 minutes. That lets "whomever" influence price, this time chasing price upward, to whatever biggish limit order to sell would have been nearest. Perhaps an MM was sitting at $9.75 with a limit order on the ask side of the book. Enthusiasts then bid price up to that mini-resistance level. )

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Looks like maybe a fund added a bit, volume spiked less than 200,000 shares and options didn't react at all. Probably therefore is just a small blip in todays trading.
