Landos Biopharma - Investor Like It Better Than Analysts

TM Editors' note: This article discusses a penny stock and/or microcap. Such stocks are easily manipulated; do your own careful due diligence.

This comes from our MicroMarvel series of articles highlighting undercovered stocks with less than a billion dollars in Market Capitalization. These articles are not intended to be buy recommendations. They highlight stocks that may have limited trading volume and may be highly volatile, so if you do decide to add them to your portfolio I highly recommend you use stop losses and limit orders.

Today's MicroMarvel is the biotechnology company Landos Biopharma (LABP). I found the stock by using Barchart's screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum, and having a Trend Seeker buy signal, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 1/8 the stock gained 43.54%.

Analysts and Investor Sentiment -- I don't buy stocks just because everyone else is buying, but I do realize that if major firms and investors are dumping a stock it's hard to make money swimming against the tide:

  • Wall Street analysts have 2 hold recommendations in place
  • CFRAs MarketScope has a hold rating
  • Only 616 investors are monitoring the stock in Seeking Alpha
