Lightbridge Corp. (LTBR), a company that actively develops nuclear fuel technology, has declined 7.21% in aftermarket trading session. Owing to that, the stock was trading at $11.59 when last checked. The decline came as a result of the profit-taking factor after the stock went berserk in Wednesday’s regular trading session. It soared by 29.97% to close the day at $12.49. The reason for the surge was the announcement from the company that its CEO, Seth Grae, would appear in the Hannity show of FOX News, even though a later release announced the postponement of the show owing to the breaking news. Let’s discuss some recent developments of LTBR stock.
