Which One To Choose? Sophiris Bio Inc (NASDAQ:SPHS) and Consol Energy Inc (NYSE:CNX)
New York, NY – GDP INSIDER – 04/16/2014.
This article discusses two companies: Sophiris Bio Inc (NASDAQ:SPHS) and Consol Energy Inc (NYSE:CNX)
Sophiris Bio Inc (NASDAQ:SPHS) reversed its recent upward trend yesterday with the stock losing 5.10% or $0.045 to close at $0.835 on very heavy trading of 2.20 million shares compared to its 30 day average trading volume of 0.644 million. The clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focusing on products to treat urological diseases has been trading between $0.44 and $1.20 for the last three months, without showing any signs of breaking out. Overall, the stock is doing well over the past three months and so far this year, it is up 55.56% YTD but despite these gains, its RSI is still at 64.34and declining, and with diluted EPS of -$1.83 the stock is not performing well enough to make further significant gains. However, the company is well financed with a current ratio of 4.60 and any major breakthrough in its research could push the stock up fast making it a potential medium to long term hold.
Consol Energy Inc (NYSE:CNX) continued to climb yesterday with the stock gaining 8.38% or $2.38 to finish the day at a new closing price of $30.78 with more than 5.69 million shares changing hands, compared to its 30 day average trading volume of 3.70 million shares. The producer of natural gas and coal for global energy and raw materials markets has been trending down for most of the last 52 weeks but has recently experienced a bullish MACD crossover. The coal industry has been nothing but doom and gloom for a long time and it is unlikely to perk up significantly in the medium term. The shares still have good long term investment potential however, and with quarterly revenue growth of 11.20% year on year and diluted EPS of $0.73, Consol Energy is in a better position than many of its competitors. Even a minor change in the sector could boost the stock to a positive gain, making it a hold at the moment.
