    Wall Street seemed to phone it in on Monday, with low volume and fairly modest moves for most major benchmarks reflecting the fact that many federal and state government offices were closed for a holiday.

Moreover, some negative news regarding individual companies weighed on sentiment. Square (NYSE:SQ), Ebix (NASDAQ:EBIX), and iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By George Budwell]

    The small-cap immuno-oncology company Agenus (NASDAQ:AGEN) and the inhaled insulin company MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) are prime examples of this phenomenon. Even though both of these companies have been in existence for over two decades, these two particular biotechs have failed to bring a product to market capable of generating a significant revenue stream. As a result, these two companies have essentially been forced to wipe out their early shareholders through serial dilution.

    Harnessing the power of the immune system to fight cancer is a big deal and Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ:AGEN) looks like a great way to follow the trend. This stock trades like a small-cap biotech, but a couple of candidates coming through its pipeline could help push annual revenue past the $1 billion mark. Plus, by this time next year, the company could have half a dozen or so new candidates in clinical trials.
