Why Is Movella Holdings (MVLA) Stock Down 16% Today?


  • Movella Holdings (MVLA) stock is falling without any news today.
  • The company’s shares underwent a massive rally on Friday.
  • Today’s drop seems to be the shares settling after those gains.

Movella Holdings (NASDAQ:MVLA) stock is falling on Tuesday but it’s not due to any negative news from the motion capture technology company.

Instead, today’s decline is a case of shares retreating from a prior rally. When MVLA stock closed out trading on Friday, the previous day of trading, shares were up 46.6%. That rise came alongside heavy trading as some 3 million shares changed hands. For the record, the company’s daily average trading volume is about 202,000 shares.

It’s worth noting that stock trading is sequential, which means MVLA isn’t giving up all of the gains it made on Friday. That’s good news for traders as pre-market trading is typically volatile. That means shares likely won’t keep decreasing if MVLA makes it through pre-market without further losses.

What Was Behind the MVLA Stock Rally?

The previous rally for MVLA seemingly came out of nowhere with there being no news from the company last week. That included a lack of press releases or filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Friday.

No matter the case, investors will want to keep an eye on MVLA stock throughout the day today in case of further losses. As of this writing, shares are down 16.2% in pre-market trading on Tuesday.
