Why MannKind Shares Are Up Nearly 5%


MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ: MNKD) shares are trading higher $0.28 at $6.03 in Monday’s session. The rally is being attributed to a First Call rating upgrade earlier this morning.

The recommendation is accompanied by a $9.75 price target, according to 9 analysts in consensus.

The issue, which has had many false starts in the past, is back above $6.00 for the first time since November 28, when it ended that session at $6.15.

With a short interest of nearly 22 percent of float, any positive developments on the research and development front may ignite a furious rally.

It's possible the Street is anticipating some much-needed good news regarding the company's rapid acting inhaled insulin drug, Afrezza.
