By staying informed about the FDA decisions and other news, investors, healthcare professionals, and patients can gauge the potential impact on the pharmaceutical industry, stock market, and patient care. These decisions can influence the market value of pharmaceutical companies. Let’s look at the news coming: 

Certainly, here is the revised table with the removal of SWTX and TAK, and the addition of BLUE:

Let’s look at some oversold and/or highly shorted stocks. 

Grasping the dynamics of oversold and heavily shorted stocks is key for traders and investors looking to capitalize on emerging opportunities. Oversold stocks can be hidden gems, potentially undervalued due to market overreaction. On the other hand, stocks with high short interest are prime candidates for a short squeeze, a situation where a swift price surge happens as short sellers rush to close their positions. Being well-informed about these scenarios equips investors with the insights needed to adeptly maneuver through market fluctuations

SPEC: A recent IPO, is currently navigating through challenging waters. Stoch RSI is in oversold condition, hinting that it might be undervalued after enduring a significant downturn. As it stands, the revival of SPEC largely hinges on an uptick in trading volume. While the short float for this stock isn’t notably high, keeping a close watch on the volume ratios could provide a interesting rebound opportunity. Making SPEC a stock to monitor closely in the upcoming sessions.

LQR: This one is in a tough spot right now, really taking a nosedive. It’s like watching something fall out of the sky, especially after that recent reverse split. And you know, split stocks have been catching some eyes lately. Its Stoch RSI is down in the dumps, totally oversold. With only about 3 million shares floating around, any big moves in volume could really shake things up. Definitely worth keeping an eye on LQR to see if it can pull out of this tailspin.

FSR: FSR’s financials are looking a bit like a bonfire right now, with a cash burn of about $468M over the trailing twelve months. That’s not small change! Despite this, there’s chatter that it might be due for a rebound. It’s been on a steady slide downwards for over a month, so it’s definitely one to watch. I’m adding it to my radar for the next few days and weeks, keeping an eye out for any signs of a bounce back. Could be an interesting play if it turns around.

LAZR: Is looking pretty rough these days. It’s like everyone’s selling and no one’s buying, pushing its RSI way down to the floor. With a hefty float of over 300 million shares, it’s going to need a serious wave of volume to get it moving again. But here’s the kicker… the 50-day SMA is hovering over $3.50. That means there’s potential for a comeback if the buyers start stepping in. I’m keeping an eye on this one; if the volume picks up, we could see some interesting action. Definitely one to watch.

Oversold beat up stocks to eye,
