BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. BMRN was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 6% 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 $83.50 to $89.87 in the past one-month time frame.

The upmove came after the company announced that the FDA has accepted valoctocogene roxaparvovec under priority review. Notably, the drug is being developed to treat adults with hemophilia A.

The company has seen one negative estimate revision in the past few weeks, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved lower over the past few weeks, suggesting there may be trouble down the road.
