    3. 3. InterMune (Nasdaq: ITMN) Shares of the biotech soared 118% this week.
    4. 4. Why Intermune more than doubled • It announced phase 3 data for Esbriet. • The drug significantly reduced progression of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in patients. • InterMune plans to resubmit the New Drug Application for Esbriet by Q3 of this year.
    5. 5. Celladon (Nasdaq: CLDN) Shares of the biotech focusing on cardiovascular disease drugs jumped more than 49% this week.
    6. 6. Why Celladon took off • It announced that French drugmaker Servier optioned its novel SERCA2b modulators for treating type 2 diabetes and other metabolic diseases. • Servier gets exclusive global rights outside the U.S. • Celladon also benefited from two analysts initiating coverage this week -- Barclays with an “overweight” rating and Stifel with a “buy” rating.
    7. 7. Prana Biotechnology (Nasdaq: PRAN) Shares of the biopharmaceutical company surged nearly 41% higher for the week.
    8. 8. Why Prana pushed higher • Investment firm H.C. Wainwright upped its price target for Prana from $20.50 to $33 per share. • The stock experienced a rebound after a big sell-off two weeks ago. • That sell-off stemmed from Summer Street’s doubts about data for Prana’s PBT2, which targets treatment of Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
    9. 9. Best pick to stay humongous? • Any or all of this week’s humongous stocks could keep moving up. • Celladon gets the nod for most likely to continue its winning ways. • The Servier deal is a huge vote of confidence for the biotech, which only recently went public. • Positive endorsements from major analysts should keep big money flowing into this stock.
