Spits and spurts are the theme of today’s sector activity!
Thursday night’s newsletter heading: “four (4) flopping sessions in a row for my comparable universe. Zombie (equities) is my sentiment term for a sector considered to lack vitality, interest and a volume pulse.”
Last night’s closing numbers:

Companies in my headlights – It’s your decision; I provide an idea and context:
I’m looking at SELLING:
CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP +$0.06 after Wednesday’s +$0.21, Tuesday’s +$2.67, Monday’s +$0.37, Friday’s +$1.53, Thursday’s +$1.18 and last Wednesday’s +$1.23 – a lot of upside that could be sold into;
AxoGen (AXGN) which closed up +$0.37 - take some off the table;
Homology Medicine (FIXX) which closed up +$1.24 and has been on a “tear” - take some off the table;
ThermoGenesis Holdings (KOOL) closed up +$0.35 – don’t trust is …
Considering BUYING: the oversold …
bluebird bio (BLUE) closed down -$3.04
Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) closed down -$3.26;
