Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (SRPT - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 7% 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 $100.47 to $135.35 in the past one-month time frame.

The upmove came after the company announced that it has signed a gene therapy agreement with Roche for $1.15 billion.
