On Tuesday, ImmunoGen Inc. (NASDAQ:IMGN) shares surged by nearly 30% after reporting positive mirvetuximab data in ovarian cancer. The company announced positive top-line data from the SORAYA trial, which measured the safety and efficacy of mirvetuximab soravtansine. 

However, ImmunoGen shares eased later in the after-hours session, losing more than 4% after the company announced $175 million worth of common stock offering.

Technically, ImmunoGen shares seem to have recently rocketed to complete an upward breakout from a sharply descending channel formation. As a result, the stock recovered from oversold conditions to move towards the overbought levels of the 14-day RSI.

However, with the after-hours pullback erasing Tuesday’s gains, investors could still target more upward profits at about $6.56, or higher at $6.95. On the other hand, if the pullback continues on Wednesday, ImmunoGen could find support at about $5.76, or lower at $5.37.

In summary, the stock could be poised for more gains based on developments in clinical trials of mirvetuximab in ovarian cancer.
