Quanterix Corporation QTRX shares rallied 7.2% in the last trading session to close at $27.39. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 0.7% gain over the past four weeks.
Quanterix recorded a strong price increase after Canaccord Genuity upgraded the company and raised the price target, indicating that the company is performing well and has strong growth potential in the market.
This company is expected to post quarterly loss of $0.36 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +10%. Revenues are expected to be $27.4 million, up 2.8% from the year-ago quarter.
Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.
For Quanterix Corporation, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions. So, make sure to keep an eye on QTRX going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
