      PTPI stock Movement

      PTPI stock saw its 75-day high on November 3, 2021, when the stock reached a value of $3.82 and closed the session at $2.88. The reason for the gain was the company’s 476% year-over-year growth in sales of its Stendra tablet. The huge growth in tablet sales was a result of an exclusive digital marketing agreement with Hims & Hers Health Inc. Following this big gain, the stock entered market corrections due to possible profit booking. And had been in a more or less downtrend since then. On November 15, the company announced its third-quarter financial results which did not impress the investors and the stock continued its fall.

      However, PTPI stock seems to be bouncing back from the market corrections and unimpressive financial results. Market sentiments seem to have been shifted given the stock’s humungous gain of 184% in the pre-market.
