Amphastar Pharmaceuticals (AMPH) Catches Eye: Stock Jumps 6.7%

Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPH was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 7% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $18.95 to $21.59 in the past one-month time frame.
