Synageva Biopharma

|Includes: Synageva BioPharma Corp. (GEVA)

The Chart of the Day is Synageva Biopharma (NASDAQ:GEVA). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency. Since analysts predict short term losses in both revenue and earnings this is a long term play. The stock has both a Trend Spotter buy and 96% technical buy signals.

It is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of therapeutic products for patients with life-threatening rare diseases and unmet medical need. Its SBC-102 is an enzyme replacement therapy for Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency, a lysosomal storage disorder.

Barchart technical indicators:

  • 96% Barchart technical buy signals
  • Trend Spotter buy signal
  • Above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages
  • 18 new highs and up 42.87% in the last month
  • Relative Strength Index 86.84%
  • Barchart computes a technical support level at 67.19
  • Recently traded at 68.98 with a 50 day moving average of 51.60

Fundamental factors:


  • Market Cap $1.88 billion
  • Revenue and earnings projections are down for the short run
  • In spite of this Wall Street analysts issued 3 strong buy 2 buy and 2 hold recommendations
  • Financial strength is B+

This is a pure technical play since revenue and earnings are not projected to grow in the short run. Analyst look for the new stock offering to be used for development of a pipeline of new drugs. Since this is a long term technical play use the 100 day moving average as your exit points
