Here's a quick look at what's moving shares of DLPH, PIRS, and ARRY.

DLPH stock is the top percentage gainer on the S&P 500 Index (SPX), up 9.5% today at $85.94, and earlier touching an annual high of $88.35, thanks to an earnings beat.

AstraZeneca Deal Puts Pieris Near the Top of the Nasdaq

PIRS stock is soaring today, due to news of a $57.5 million deal with AstraZeneca plc (ADR) (NYSE:AZN) to develop drugs for respiratory issues. The stock is one of the top gainers on the Nasdaq at last check, up 54.6% at $3.71 -- bringing its year-to-date advance to 164%. Plenty of short sellers are getting burned, too. Short interest on Pieris Pharmaceuticals Inc jumped by 61% over the past two reporting periods. 

Analyst Upgrade Helps Array Biopharma Shares Rebound

After taking a 16% hit yesterday, ARRY stock is bouncing back, thanks to an upgrade to "overweight" at J.P. Morgan Securities. The shares are now trading back atop their rising 200-day moving average, adding 6.6% today at $7.85. This is likely good news for options traders, who have shown bullish tendencies. For instance, Array Biopharma Inc has a 50-day call/put volume ratio of 40.39 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) , which ranks in the 91st annual percentile.
