Diplomat Pharmacy (DPLO) Catches Eye: Stock Jumps 9.4%

Zacks Equity Research

Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc. DPLO was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise above 9% on the day. The stock rallied after the company announced that it completed the acquisition of Houston, TX-based specialty pharmacy, and infusion services company, Affinity Biotech, Inc. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $12.50 to $14.19 in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30 days, the company has seen five downward estimate revisions and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved lower, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent move higher can last.       

Diplomat Pharmacy currently carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
