A A A


Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. ( KYTH ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 10% on the day. This rally higher can be attributable to solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent downtrend for the company as the stock is now down about 22.8% in the past one-month time frame.
