Amicas, Limelight: Early Volume Plays

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Several stocks trading near $5 were poised to move on above-average volume during Monday's session.

Vical (VICL - Get Report) said its Phase III trial of Allovectin-7 for the treatment of metastatic melanoma received a positive review from safety monitoring board. The 50-day average daily volume for Vical is 489,000 shares, according to the Nasdaq. The stock closed at $2.75 Thursday.

Koss (KOSS - Get Report) shares were set to trade lower after the company said it has terminated VP of Finance Sujata Sachdeva and warned that financial statements are unreliable since at least 2006.
