Trxade (NASDAQ: MEDS) on Monday posted second-quarter revenues that more-than-tripled to $6.6 million, primarily driven by higher sales of personal protective equipment (PPE) through its Integra Pharma unit. The top-line was way ahead of the average Wall Street consensus of $2.15 million in revenues.
Meanwhile, the company swung to a loss of $0.07 per share, from a profit of $0.01 per share a year ago, as lower margins on the pandemic-driven products weighed on the bottom-line results. Analysts, were on average, expecting a profit of 1 cent per share.
The big top-line beat sent the stock soaring 35% during after-market hours. The stock has gained 74% in the trailing 12 months.
