Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CMO and Expert Comments

“Data from the EASE LID 3 trial of ADS-5102 further illustrates the potential for ADS-5102 to reduce the unwanted involuntary movements called dyskinesia, as well as OFF time, so patients can be more independent in their daily activities,” stated Rajesh Pahwa, M.D., Laverne & Joyce Rider Professor of Neurology and Director of the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Center at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

“We look forward to submitting a new drug application for ADS-5102 to the FDA later this year and the potential of bringing the first FDA-approved medicine for the treatment of LID to Parkinson’s patients in the coming year,” said Rajiv Patni, M.D., Adamas’ Chief Medical Officer.  Globe Newswire

ADMS closed trading yesterday at $18.09 and spiked up after market to $19.49, equivalent to a 8% increase from the closing price.

ADMS has a float of 14.55 million shares and traded at the normal daily trading volume on Tuesday. For trading purposes, I would like to see ADMS open trading on Wednesday above $19.00 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.25 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
