Fuse Science (DROP) Rallies Despite Market and Its Symbol

Fuse Science (OTC: DROP) continued its recent climb, gaining just under four cents or 12% during a time when equity markets generally swooned throughout the day after a promising opening.  Fuse Science stock opened unchanged from Friday’s closing price and never gave ground the remainder of the day.  The stock closed at 35 cents, which was also the high of the day. A little over one million shares exchanged hands, which is around the average for this spring. With about twenty minutes to go in the trading session, a 400,000 shares traded and the stock surged toward the closing high.

Over the last month, Fuse Science stock has crawled higher by about 15 cents or a percentage gain of 75%.  Since January, the stock has traded primarily in a range between 25 and 40 cents with a brief dip near 20 cents in May. The annual high was reached in December when the issue spiked to $1.25 on volume exceeding 10 million shares. The fifty-two week low came almost a year ago at a price of 4 cents.

Founded in 1985, the Miami-based company provides energy and body replenishment products. Fuse Science claims it has a more effective electrolyte and energy delivery system for individuals ranging from professional athletes to working mothers.
