The company went public 02/2018 with an IPO price of $20.0 and jumped to >$30.0 the first day of trading, dropped to <$20 in late December and traded below $20 until the last Friday. It jumped by >10% today on enormous volume, just 2 days before its earnings release on 2/28/2019.

It appears as a unique ticker with hyper growth rate (>50%). The following are from its Q3 2018 report:
2017_Q4 2018_Q1 2018_Q2 2018_Q3
“GMV” $310,718 $292,692 $338,543 $309,973
Growth_GMV 58% 66% 55% 52%
Revenue 126,482 122,707 144,801 132,179
Growth_Revenue 53% 54% 55% 52%

For Q42018, the company was guiding $435K - $445K, representing a growth rate of 42% - 45%.

I think it is worthy of some attention.
