Cumulus Erases Nine Days Of Wall Street Dips


Oh, those finicky investors! One day after dipping to its second-lowest post-bankruptcy low, Cumulus Media shares exploded in heavier-than-usual trading on the Nasdaq Global Select market.

Wednesday’s trading session finished with CMLS up by more than 21%.

This puts Cumulus shares at $3.92, rising 69 cents from Tuesday, when shares slumped — perhaps in reaction to a Simply Wall St. analysis that suggests investors have soured on Cumulus.

Volume was 455,713 shares; average volume for CMLS is 143,523.

It was not immediately clear as to what served as a catalyst for Cumulus on Wednesday.
