NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Several stocks trading near $5 were moving on above-average volume during Friday's session.

YM BioSciences (YMI) fell by 26 cents, or 18.7%, to $1.13 after the company said it will raise $15 million in a registered direct offering at a price of $1.20 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant. Volume topped 2.8 million shares, compared to the three-month average daily volume of 223,000, according to the Yahoo! Finance.

Interleukin Genetics (ILI) lost 30 cents, or 20%, to $1.20 after the company said it will raise $5.3 million in a direct offering at a price of $1.20 per unit.
