Fate Therapeutics (FATE) Falls: Stock Goes Down 13.5%


Fate Therapeutics, Inc. (FATE) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by nearly 14% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for FATE as the stock is now up around 40% in the past one-month time frame.

Although this slump was obviously disappointing, this biopharmaceutical company has seen 1 positive revision and its current year loss estimate has narrowed over the past few weeks. This suggests that the recent slump might be a temporary blip on the radar for FATE.
