Up 24% In A Month, Will CRISPR Stock Continue To See Higher Levels?

CRISPR Therapeutics stock (NASDAQ: CRSP), a biotechnology gene-editing company focused on developing gene-based medicines for human diseases, has risen a solid 24% in a month, outperforming the broader markets with the S&P500 down 8%. The recent rally in CRSP RSP stock was led by its positive findings from an early-stage clinical trial of its CAR AR -T therapy – CTX130 – for treating solid tumors and certain hematologic malignancies. The results show a 70% overall response rate and 90% of the patients seeing a clinical benefit at a higher dose level. [1]

Now that CRSP stock has seen a rise of 24% in a month, will it continue its upward trajectory, or is a fall imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a higher chance of a rise for CRSP stock over the next month. Of 212 instances in the last six years that CRSP stock saw a twenty-one-day rise of 24% or more, 127 resulted in CRSP stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 127 out of 212, or about a 60% chance of a rise in CRSP stock over the next month. See our analysis of CRISPR Stock Chance of Rise for more details.
