Vir (VIR) Looks Good: Stock Adds 12.9% in Session

Vir Biotechnology, Inc. VIR was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 13% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, which remained volatile and traded within the range of $16.26 –$60.20 in the past one-month time frame, witnessed a sharp increase yesterday.

The upmove came after the company announced a research collaboration agreement with the National Institutes of Health Vaccine Research Center to develop antibodies against coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2.

The company has seen no changes when it comes to estimate revision 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.
