Athersys, Inc. ( ATHX ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by almost 6% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend of the company as the stock has now gained almost 35% since Nov 12.

The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
