We want to congratulate any of our reader who were able to take advantage of that timely alert which yielded the opportunity at intraday gains of up to 48% The healthy spike came on nearly tenfold the 3-month average trading volume.
Friday’s move came in conjunction with the announcement of successful pre-clinical trials for its SurgiBot minimally invasive surgery system. Two different doctors used TRXC’s product in actual medical procedures and subsequently offered their endorsements. It is an important step on the way to FDA application submission, which the company has stated should be on the table by mid-2015. Thus, TRXC may be one that we’ll want to have on a more long-term watch.
