Sangamo Therapeutics, Inc. SGMO was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 14% 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 volatile price range of $11.60 to $14.50 in the past one-month time frame.

The move came after the company reported that its Hunter syndrome treatment witnessed a new mileage when the first patient had been dosed in a phase 1/2 trial to evaluate the potential for its gene-editing technology.

Though the company has seen one positive estimate revision over the past few weeks, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter remained unchanged. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
