Why Investors Are Watching Aptorum After a One-Day 290% Surge

In this Friday edition of Advisors In Focus, we review what your clients are researching in order for you to understand their interests better, and, ultimately, to provide you with additional customer insights. This data is critical, not only as a sentiment barometer for where your clients may be investing but also another avenue to identify potential investment opportunities. For example, while COVID-19 stocks continue to see interest for obvious reasons, another name in the healthcare space has come to the surface: Aptorum (APM). The stock rallied 290% Tuesday after the biotech company, which makes novel technologies to treat infectious diseases, announced the launch of a liquid biopsy diagnostics subsidiary along with licensing agreements.

As shares nearly tripled in one day, APM was on the radar of many retail investors and was at the top of the list for surging traffic early this week (compared to the week before), according to TrackStarIQ rankings. Please find the complete list below.
