Poniard Pharmaceuticals (PARD) slumped by 14 cents, or 7.9%, to $1.63 after the company posted a fourth-quarter loss of 36 cents a share, which was wider than the Thomson Reuters average estimate for a loss of 24 cents a share.

Volume topped 3.22 million shares, compared to the 50-day average daily volume of 2.62 million.
