Today's Research Reports on Stocks to Watch: Sangamo Therapuetics and Nutanix

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 5, 2017 / Sangamo Therapeutics continued seeing gains on Friday after a week of steady moves north. The company moved over 35% last week, riding the coat tails of big news from other companies. Nutanix may have closed the day up flat but the company posted a beat on the top and bottom line in its fourth quarter fiscal financial report. Many analysts are expecting the company to post over $1 billion in revenue for fiscal 2018.

Sangamo Therapeutics, Inc.'s shares closed up 6.74% on Friday with a little over 5 million shares traded. The stock hit a new 52-week high of $15.05. The stock has seen gains of over 33% last week despite any big news. The biotech company did announce that the first patient has received treatment in the phase 1/2 clinical trial of SB-525, which is Sangamo's gene therapy for patients with Hemophilia A. The big gains last week could be a result of other companies in the gene therapy arena flying higher. Recently Abeona received FDA "breakthrough therapy" designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its EB-101 gene therapy program, for patients with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Sangamo is developing gene therapies. Sangamo is focused on gene editing with four clinical programs in its pipeline and three pre-clinical programs.
