Amarin (AMRN) Soars: Stock Adds 9.9% in Session

Zacks Equity Research

Amarin Corporation plc AMRN was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 10% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $3.97 to $4.37 in the past one-month time frame.

The move came after the company announced that its REDUCE-IT cardiovascular outcomes study has reported and documented more than 90% of the targeted 1,612 primary major adverse cardiovascular events.

The company has seen a flat track record when it comes to estimate revisions over the past few weeks, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also remained unchanged. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
