Key points:

  • Wearable Devices’ stock price soared 48% despite a lack of news.
  • The company recently IPO’d on the Nasdaq exchange last month.
  • Can today’s rally translate into an uptrend? Read on to find out.

Wearable Devices Ltd (NASDAQ: WLDS) stock price soared 48% despite the lack of announcements from the wearable devices company. The company’s stock price crashed after its Nasdaq IPO on September 12, 2022.

The company had priced the 3.75 million shares on offer at $4.25 each to raise $16 million, but the shares have since fallen massively to trade at $0.88 on Friday. Today’s rally relieves existing investors as buyers stream in, pushing WLDS stock higher.

Over 1.86 million Wearable Devices shares have changed hands at writing as retail investor interest in the stock shot up. However, the relevant question is, will today’s rally result in a sustained uptrend? The short answer is it is too early to tell.

The Israeli company specialises in designing and manufacturing wearable wristbands that tap into a person’s neural networks to give non-touch commands to smart devices such as smartphones and smartwatches.

Investors are not as enthusiastic about its innovative wristbands yet, despite the bands integrating with the Apple Watch. The wristbands can also be paired with the iPhone, which can receive non-touch commands.

The smartwatch market is already crowded at the moment, and Wearable Devices has to market its bands quite aggressively to stand out while at the same time educating potential clients on the benefits of its non-touch wristbands as opposed to the typical smartwatch.

There is a good chance that Wearable Devices’ stock price will recover once it can prove that there is demand for its innovative wristbands. However, until then, I would refrain from buying it since there is a risk that the company may fail in future.
