  • 3 Humongous Health-Care Stocks This Week
  • Seattle Seahawks fans weren’t the only ones dancing for joy this week. Here are three health-care stocks experiencing their own super celebrations. Source: Wikimedia Commons
  • Furiex Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: FURX) Shares of this drugmaker skyrocketed a whopping 137% this week.
  • Why Furiex rose so furiously • The company announced fantastic results from two midstage studies of eluxadoline. • The drug for diarrheapredominant irritable bowel syndrome met primary endpoints for both the FDA and EMA. • Furiex plans to file for regulatory approval in the second quarter.
  • Ohr Pharmaceutical (Nasdaq: OHRP) Shares of the biotech surged 30% higher for the week.
  • Why Ohr paddled its way so much higher • There were no big new developments this week. The Stock run-up is probably in anticipation of the company’s presentation at the BIO CEO & Investor Conference on Feb. 11. • There’s intense interest in wet AMD drug Squalamine.
  • Athenahealth (Nasdaq: ATHN) The cloud-based physicians’ software maker jumped 18% this week.
  • Why athenahealth is on Cloud Nine • It announced stellar Q4 results on Friday. • Adjusted earnings of $0.57 per share blew away analysts’ estimates of $0.44 per share. • Revenue is up an impressive 48% year-over-year to $171.6 million.
  • Best pick to stay humongous? • Furiex shows lots of potential. • It faces a potential market of 28 million patients in U.S. and Europe. • Limited treatment options are available for diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome. • It still must win regulatory approval – but its prospects look pretty good at this point.
