Why STRATA Skin Sciences Inc (SSKN) Skyrocketed

STRATA Skin Sciences Inc (NASDAQ:SSKN) shares have rocketed by 50% in late morning trading after the company executed a 1-for-5 reverse stock split that took place at the opening of trading on April 7. Due to the reverse stock split, STATA is now in compliance with the $1 minimum bid price requirement for the continued listing on the NASDAQ capital market.

De-listed/OTC stocks typically command lower valuations than listed NASDAQ/NYSE stocks due to less visibility. Because STRATA Skin Sciences Inc (NASDAQ:SSKN)’s stock price is now comfortably higher than the $1 per share level, sentiment around the name has improved due to less fear that it might be de-listed in the near future. Due to the improved sentiment, STRATA Skin Sciences shares have rallied.
