Zacks Equity Research

ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc. (ZIOP) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose nearly 9% on the day. The rise came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend for the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $2.43 to $2.77 in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30-day frame, the company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

ZIOPHARM Oncology currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its  Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
