TrovaGene, Inc. TROV – Review
We last mentioned TROV on December 18th, and at the time the stock was trading down to an annual low of .503. Since then, we’ve seen a slow and steady recovery, which was kicked into a higher gear yesterday following news of Trovagene and PoC Capital entering an agreement to fund the development of Onvansertib in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.
The stock ended up hitting .73, marking a 45% rise since we mentioned it. We will want to continue monitoring TROV for further advances from this point forward.
