Share

Shares of Repros Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:RPRX) are trading down considerable in early trading this morning, coming off of a 45.1% gain late last week.

The run up in share price on Friday was because of expected FDA results later today on a drug called Enclomiphene that the company has been working on.

With their FDA PDUFA review and subsequent results expected today, shares may have gotten a bit ahead of themselves, as investors seem to be selling off shares, perhaps taking some profits off the table. A favorable review by the FDA could spark a rapid rise in share price, however, negative results could send shares well below the $1.50 level. We will be paying close attention to this stock throughout the day and hope to do a followup report once news hits. The stock is down 8.13% or $0.21 after the negative news, hitting $2.33 per share.
