The stock price of BeiGene (NASDAQ: BGNE), a biotechnology company focused on developing molecularly targeted and immuno-oncology drug candidates, has seen a rise of 46% over the last twenty-one trading days, while it is up 54% year-t0-date.  The recent rise in the stock can be attributed to the U.S. FDA’s approval for BeiGene’s blood cancer drug – Brukinsa –  for Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia (WM), a rare type of blood cancer. Note that Brukinsa was already approved as a second-line treatment for mantle cell lymphoma. And now with its recent approval for WM, the drug’s peak sales estimates are likely to be revised higher from an earlier $2.5 billion in 2025. This has boded well with the investors, evident from the large stock price appreciation. 

But now that BGNE stock has seen a large 46% move over the last month or so, will it continue its upward trajectory, or is a fall imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a strong chance of a decline in BGNE stock over the next month. Out of 45 instances in the last six years that BGNE stock saw a twenty-one day rise of 46% or more, 38 of them resulted in BGNE stock falling over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 38 out of 45, or about an 84% chance of a fall in BGNE stock over the coming month. See our analysis on BeiGene Stock Chance of Decline for more details.
