Cempra, Inc. ( CEMP ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell nearly 11% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the most recent downtrend for CEMP, as the stock is down almost 16% since Jan 10.

This pharmaceutical company has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions, as there has been no revision on either side over the past few weeks.
