Unfortunately for investors, Dynavax has been a "sell the news" scenario as the stock has nearly doubled since its July 27 low of $8.90 when it reached $24.45 on October 5.

In today's session, it was unable to clear Friday's close ($20.25), only reaching $20.20 and began to move lower. The ensuing decline took the stock beyond Friday's low ($18.60), reaching $18.20 as of 1:20 p.m. EST. That marks its lowest level since it bottomed on September 5 at $17.70.
