Chimerix (CMRX) Jumps: Stock Adds 8.0% in Session - Tale of the Tape


Chimerix, Inc. ( CMRX ) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose just over 8% on the day. The rise came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as it is now trading above the volatile price range of $15.11 to $19.60 in the past one-month timeframe.

In the last 30-day frame, the company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
