    3. 3. Shares of the medical-device company leaped 19% this week. Orthofix (Nasdaq: OFIX) Source: Yahoo! Finance
    4. 4. • Orthofix reported Q4 and full-year 2013 results on Thursday. • Sales were down 10% year over year last quarter to $106.1 million and declined 11% for the full year to $400.5 million. • Despite the dismal results, Orthofix projected better financial performance in 2014 and a return to profitability as early as 2015. Why Orthofix took off
    5. 5. Shares of the nutritional-products company jumped more than 12% this week. Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) Source: Yahoo! Finance
    6. 6. • Activist investor Carl Icahn picked up control of three additional board seats. • Herbalife and other multi-level marketers received a bump after Nu Skin received a relatively small fine following a Chinese investigation of the company’s business practices. • Herbalife also launched a new website aimed at countering accusations that the company operates a pyramid scheme. Why Herbalife hopped
    7. 7. Shares of the biopharmaceutical company climbed nearly 12% higher for the week. Keryx Biopharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: KERX) Source: Yahoo! Finance
    8. 8. • The U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation that prevents Medicare from including dialysis drugs in bundled payments. • This bill is expected to pass in the U.S. Senate soon. • Keryx stands to benefit from this legislation if its hyperphosphatemia drug KRX-0502 gains regulatory approval. • The FDA is scheduled to make a decision on KRX-0502 by June 7.
