Since the start of 2023, Rite Aid stock is down 51.6%. 

Astrotech Corp (NASDAQ:ASTC) is 14% to trade at $12.99 at last check, after BML Investment Partners' Braden Leonard offered to buy the company for $17.25 per share. The stock is grappling with its 320-day moving for the first time since April 2021. Year-to-date, the equity is up 29.2%.

Adicet Bio Inc (NASDAQ:ACET) is at the bottom of the Nasdaq today, down 52.3% at $2.23 at last glance, and earlier hitting a record low of $2.08. The company just shared data from a phase 1 study for its non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treatment, and while results seemed positive, ACET saw no fewer than four price-target cuts. Year-to-date, the stock is down roughly 75%.
