Major market indexes set record highs again this week, but not everyone joined in the celebration. Here are three party-poopers for the week from the world of health care.
Hard to say goodbye
Synta Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: SNTA ) found out how hard it can be to say goodbye. The company’s head of research and development left abruptly this week. Shares of the biotech sank 18% on the news.
The other negative for Synta came from the analyst community. BMO Capital downgraded the stock from outperform to market perform. However, this action stemmed from the departure of Synta’s R&D president, Sumant Ramachandra.
Ramachandra left suddenly after less than two months heading up Synta’s R&D group. The company stated that he resigned “for personal reasons.” A BMO analyst suggested that the surprise departure hinted at a “less than amicable separation,” although no further details were provided by Synta.
