    Nov 6, 2013 4:38 PM | about stocks: Y

    The Chart of the Day is Gentium SPA (GENT). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for Weighted Alpha. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 7/15 the stock soared 573.25%.

    It is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and manufacture of drugs to treat and prevent a variety of vascular diseases and conditions related to cancer and cancer treatments. Defibrotide, the Company's lead product candidate, is an investigational drug that has been granted Track Designation by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of Severe VOD, Orphan Drug status by the U.S. FDA for the treatment and prevention of VOD and Orphan Medicinal Product Designation by the European Commission for the treatment and prevention of VOD.
