Why Viking Therapeutics Stock Is Soaring Today
Motley Fool
George Budwell, The Motley Fool
,Motley Fool•September 18, 2018
What happened
Viking Therapeutics (NASDAQ: VKTX), a clinical-stage biotech, saw its shares rise by as much as 180% in premarket trading today. The spark?

Viking's shares are soaring in response to a positive mid-stage result for its experimental nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) medicine VK2809. Most critically, the drug seems to compare favorably to Madrigal Pharmaceuticals' (NASDAQ: MDGL) MGL-3196 in terms of both safety and efficacy.

As a reminder, Madrigal's shares exploded higher earlier this year after reporting mid-stage results for MGL-3196. So, not surprisingly, Madrigal's shares sank by a staggering 14% in pre-market trading on the news that a major rival might have a more potent drug in development.
