Cellectis S.A. (CLLS - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise 17% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company —as the stock is now up 21.8% in the past one-month time frame.
The upmove could have been driven by Gilead Sciences’ acquisition of Kite Pharma, which marks a large investment by Gilead into a cancer treatment called chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, or CAR-T. Cellectis is presently working in CAR-T therapy.

So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
