Active Stocks in the Spotlight: Great Basin Scientific Inc (NASDAQ:GBSN), KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), SYSCO Corporation (NYSE:SYY)

On Thursday, Shares of Great Basin Scientific Inc (NASDAQ:GBSN), lost -14.53% to $0.940.

Great Basin Scientific, Inc. (GBSN) is ongoing to bleed lower following its reverse split and is now down over 99% from its pre-split highs. Shares of the molecular testing company were dealt another blow this week when it was declared that the company was issuing more convertible notes and common stock warrants. Despite the ongoing investigations in regards to GBSN’s public offering of 2.724M shares back in February of this year, three hedge funds stated a stake in the company as of the last 13F filings. GBSN presents investors with a potentially undervalued technical chart setup in the near term.

GBSN is a stock we are closely following as it has yet to really bounce since reverse splitting. When the bounce does occur it could be a very good opportunity for short term traders to capitalize on.

Great Basin Scientific, Inc., a molecular diagnostic testing company, doing business as Great Basin Corporation, develops and commercializes molecular diagnostic systems that are designed to test hospital-attained infections.
