Friday's Small-Cap Winners & Losers

Sangamo Biosciences (SGMO - Get Report) was one of Friday's small-cap winners, climbing 5% on speculation that the drug developer could a takeover target.

Shares of the biotech were trading up 38 cents to $7.90.

Mothers Work (MWRK) slumped after the Philadelphia-based maternity apparel company said CEO Dan Matthias and President and Chief Operating Officer Rebecca Matthias sold 476,220 shares of the company's stock.
