Salix Pharmaceuticals Ltd. ( SLXP ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 16% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company, as the stock has gained nearly 24% in the past one-month time frame.

This developer of prescription drugs and medical devices for various gastrointestinal diseases has seen no estimate revisions in the last 7 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has also remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday's rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Salix currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Some Medical Drug stocks worth considering are Endo International plc ( ENDP ), Hyperion Therapeutics, Inc. ( HPTX ) and United Therapeutics Corporation ( UTHR ). All the three stocks sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
