By
A A A

Synthetic Biologics Inc. ( SYN ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 18% on the day. The move 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 the stock is now trading above the past one month's volatile price range of $1.00 to $1.35.

This biotechnology company has seen no estimate revision in the last 7 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has also remained unchanged over the same period. Yesterday's sharp climb is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
