TransCode Therapeutics (NASDAQ:RNAZ) stock is rallying higher on Wednesday after the company withdrew plans for a secondary offering.

According to the company, it won’t pursue a plan to sell 12.5 million shares in a public offering. TransCode had presented the idea in a filing but hadn’t provided investors with a price for each share in the offering.

TransCode Therapeutics’ reason for withdrawing the public offering has to do with current market conditions. It said that these conditions are “not conducive for an offering on terms that would be in the best interests of the Company’s stockholders.”

What’s Happening With RNAZ Stock Today

Following news of the withdrawal, shares of RNAZ stock have seen heavy trading and a rising price. As of this writing, more than 54 million shares of the stock have changed hands. For the record, the daily average trading volume is closer to 702,000 shares.

That positive movement makes sense, as today’s announcement rebuilds investor confidence. Traders typically don’t respond well to public offerings as they dilute investments by increasing the number of outstanding shares.

Investors will also note that RNAZ stock is seeing extraordinary growth today. Considering the cheap price of the stock, it could be a case of retail traders using today’s news as a catalyst to pump and dump the shares. Traders will want to keep that in mind while weighing any investments in RNAZ today.

RNAZ stock is up 147.7% as of Wednesday morning.
