Dennis Dick On Virgin Galactic's Stock: 'What Do We Have To Look Forward To?'

On Monday’s PreMarket Prep, Dennis Dick, and Spencer Israel discussed the large gap up in shares of Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. SPCE at the open of the premarket session, and why the subsequent drop was not a good sign. 

“This stock traded almost $60 at 4:00 am. I think this is as good as it gets,” Dick said. “We often talk about ‘Is this trade now as good as it gets?’ I think it is. What do we have to look forward to? Everybody’s been looking forward to this event. Stocks always want something to look forward to. Now we look forward to people actually going into space and maybe they get some revenue and that's cool and everything. But the hype of that first blast is all kind of gone. So it's kind of like the hangover after the party now."

Shares of Virgin Galactic opened at $49.55 and were trading down 15% from Friday’s close as of early Monday afternoon. 

“4:00 am trading, if you’re going in there and you’re buying stocks up 20%, you’re usually doing it backward.”
