Omeros Corporation (OMER)

Omeros Corporation skyrocketed today, up 68.17% at $8.56. The biopharmaceutical company saw its shares jump after news of an increased price target. Wedbush raised Omeros' price target to $28 from $18 following a conversation with a high-volume cataract surgeon on OMS302's potential use and the changing regulatory environment. The analyst believes increased costs for topical solutions and pressure from the FDA could result in increased use of OMS302 after expected FDA approval in the U.S. Shares of Omeros jumped nearly $3.50 today but are still below their 52-week high of $11.85.
