Neurotrope Inc (NASDAQ: NTRP) shares are trading lower by $10.50 (55 percent) or 55 percent at $8.31 in Monday's session after Phase 2 results came out less than positive.

The issue is in a freefall after Adam Feuerstein spoke on Benzinga's PreMarket Prep and exposed the actual results of what the company deemed as a positive for Bryostatin for the treatment for Alzheimer's disease.

Adding to the selling pressure is Friday's who anticipated good results and purchased shares  during its rally from Thursday's close of $15.13 to $18.81.

After being pounded in the pre-market session, Neurotrope's stock could only manage a nickel bounce of its nearly $9.00 lower opening print to $10.05 before continuing its move lower.

So far, the ensuing decline has taken the stock to $8.16 and it's attempting to mount a rebound. Despite the rout in today's session, the issue is still in the green for 2017, as it ended 2016 at $7.52.
