Sanofi (SNY) closed at $38 in the latest trading session, marking a -0.45% move from the prior day. This move was narrower than the S&P 500's daily loss of 2.11%. Elsewhere, the Dow lost 1.54%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq lost 0.3%.

Prior to today's trading, shares of the drugmaker had lost 6.97% over the past month. This has lagged the Medical sector's loss of 4.04% and was narrower than the S&P 500's loss of 8.19% in that time.
