IntelliPharmaCeutics International Inc. ( IPCI ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares shoot by nearly 162% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session as the company gained the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's approval to market the generic version of attention deficit hyperactive disorder drug, Focalin XR. The closing price represents a substantial jump from the near-flat trading range of $1.68 to $2.00 in the past one-month time frame.

This biopharmaceutical company has seen no estimate revisions in the past 30 days and its Zacks Consensus Estimate has remained unchanged. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
