9/22 Notable Small Cap Movers

Big Gainers

IZEA +64% A nanocap adtech company. Came out with a new 3d sponsorship product. 

MDGL +53% Ini from Evercore with a $65 PT.  $400M market cap, a decent sized small cap biotech. What really moved it is the $300 PT bull case that Evercore put on it. That's what really impressed investors. Is it possible that investors really missed this stock by that much?

 But I see this stock fading on Monday, people just don't beleive those kind of PTs, and it has a 52 week low of $11.25, quite a bit lower than its close of $34.18. It didn't rise very much on ph 2 positive data. The stock will pop at the open, and then sell off by the close is my prediction. 

ARDM +29% No apparent news causing the rally. Could it be from anticipation of the Ladenburg Thalmann conference presentation on Tuesday afternoon?

SSC +27% Microcap, B2B virtual platform in China. Has some fancy buzzwords to describe itself, like AI. Chinese stocks don't need US news to move far.

ASND +23% As mentioned earlier, just because its competitor's competing drug failed, doesn't mean this drug won't. Also, a very good analyst at Wells, which I checked on Tipranks.com, said this was a positive, but he didn't increase his price target on ASND. ASND was up 50% in the PM, was a good fade opp for these reasons. 

ALPN +19% Ug to buy from hold at Stifel. Has come down a lot since its 52 week high. Collaboration with Kite is a strong positive.

HMNY +19% Up on interview with executive. Doesn't seem like a good model, because the more times people use it, the more money the company loses. With Netflix or a gym, more people can use it and it won't cost the company much more.

QUAD +14% Likely delayed reaction to news that it was awarded a $450M contract announced Thursday afternoon.

BEDU +14% A chinese private school company. No news.

OMNT +14% Company hasn't been in compliance with NASDAQ listing requirements. The stock has been getting crushed, this is likely an empty bounce.
