Five Prime Therapeutics, Inc. (FPRX) exploded on Wednesday with a major breakaway move, and at premarket it reached all the way up to 27ish. It came down, bounced, and closed up 12.66, or 237%, to 18.00, from a low of 16.63 to a session high of 24.00, on 76 million shares traded. In after-hours it was up another 3.22 to 21.22. I think this stock will work its way back to 28, and if it gets lucky it may see mid-30’s, even low-40’s.
Moderna, Inc. (MRNA) broke out on Wednesday, and closed up 6.39, or 8.4%, to 82.44, with a session high of 83.98, on an accelerated volume of 18.6 million shares traded and in after-hours it ran up an additional 1.81 to 84.25. With that kind of volume and that kind of surge with a finish at the highs for the day, I think it will extend to the 93-94 zone.
NIO Inc. (NIO) on Wednesday popped 1.53, or 3.68%, to 43.08, with a session high of 43.23, on 178 million shares traded and another 38 cents to 43.46 in after-hours. After a one-day pullback it resumed its advance, but it had an inside day, meaning the range was inside Tuesday’s range. It is not necessarily bullish but watch the 45-45.25 range. If it gets through here, it could lead to low to mid-50’s.
Nikola Corporation (NKLA) moved up 2.15, or 12%, on Wednesday, to 20.18, with a session high of 21.19, on 20.55 million shares traded. I have not talked about this stock for a while because I did not like its pattern. I put a swing on it before it in October, it pulled back and test the lows, and Wednesday’s pop took it back up. It appears to me it may be beginning a new move, but we will have to see if there is a follow-through on Thursday. If there is, then the initial target is 23.50 followed by 25.
Upwork Inc. (UPWK) had a massive breakout a week ago, then a 3-4 day pullback, only to resume on Wednesday with a nice gain of 3.85, or 14.2%, to 30.99, and a session high of 31.02, on 4.4 million shares traded. This looks like a stock that wants to be at least mid to high-30’s.
