It’s worth noting that IPOs have been seeing incredible volatility lately. Several initial public offerings have been targeted by traders jumping on shares as soon as they go public and selling after they rise higher.
It appears this might be happening with SHPH stock today as some 1 million shares change hands as of this writing. The company’s stock is also soaring 92% higher as of Thursday morning.
