Whats the SYNTA connection and history?

Madrigal is on the move! The stock is up an amazing 100% in maybe 2-3 weeks. I am holding a lousy 221 shares. They were part of the SYNTA deal where SYNTA and Madrigal merged and than did RS of 1:35 and my penny shares of Synta (big let down over Rigosertib!) all of sudden were worth keeping on the NASDAQ and apparently in my Portfolio, but I lost shares at a rate of 1 for 35 so I figured that's it..im finished..another one BITES THE DUST!

WRONG!

In the last two weeks my failed Synta turned Madrigal which was trading about $15-18 range post split started to move up noticeably..it was moving up slow and steady all summer...I suppose Evercore was building their position...Volume picked up too..than we get the news yesterday that Evercore ISI the darling NY BANKER of WS said this...
