Tesaro shares spike on buyout news, trading halted

Shares of Tesaro (TSRO), an oncology-focused biopharma company, skyrocketed after the news that it has been working with advisors for a possible sale. The stock, which opened at $26.46 today, reached a maximum of $38.35 and jumped more than 30%. Because of the sudden spike, the trading of Tesaro shares was halted.
