Mirati Therapeutics stock (NASDAQ: MRTX) has risen a solid 20% in a month, outperforming the broader markets with the S&P500 down 6%. The recent rally in MRTX stock was led by its positive findings from an early-stage clinical trial of Adagrasib, a treatment for patients with lung cancer harboring the KRAS mutation. The results from clinical trials show a significant 84% disease control rate. [1] The drug is expected to be approved by the U.S. by the end of this year as a second-line treatment for KRAS-mutated non-small cell lung cancer. The peak sales for Adagrasib are estimated to be over $1.5 billion. Mirati’s total revenues were $72 million in 2021, with the primary source being licenses and collaboration.

Now that MRTX stock has seen a rise of 20% in a month, will it continue its upward trajectory, or is a fall imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a high chance of a rise for Mirati stock over the next month. Of 439 instances in the last ten years that MRTX stock saw a twenty-one-day rise of 20% or more, 275 resulted in MRTX stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days).
