Hepion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HEPA - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise 9% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company—as the stock is now down 38.9% in the past one-month time frame.
