Strength Seen in Establishment Labs Holdings Inc. (ESTA): Can Its 14.3% Jump Turn into More Strength?

Establishment Labs Holdings Inc. ESTA shares rallied 14.3% in the last trading session to close at $39.29. 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 33.9% loss over the past four weeks.

The product, comprising Establishment Labs’ patented SmoothSilk surface technology, will be now available to women in the United States.


This company is expected to post quarterly loss of $0.70 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +7.9%. Revenues are expected to be $41.1 million, up 7.5% from the year-ago quarter.
