On CAPS, 38% of the 82 members who have rated Nymox believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star zzlangerhans, cautioned our community about the stock's recent surge:

When Nymox stock trailed down from steady state at [$8 per share] to below [$6 per share] this summer, I figured the smart money was leaving ahead of negative results from the phase III trials of NX-1207 for BPH. Now I'm surprised to see the share price rocketing back up close to the year high without any visible positive catalyst. This definitely doesn't have the characteristics of a run-up, so is it insider trading ahead of a positive data announcement? I can't say that's impossible, but I'm going to call it stirrapulation and place my bet on negative data from this murky trial from a very murky biopharma.
