StockCall Pre-Market Review on AMRN, ARAY, ATRS, and ANTH Provides Stock Research on Amarin Corp. plc, Accuray Inc., Antares Pharma Inc., and Anthera Pharmaceuticals Inc.

New York City, New York -- (May 20, 2013)

The healthcare sector has been facing significant challenges over the last few years. One of the biggest challenges is the implementation of Affordable Care Act (ACA), which was upheld by the Supreme Court last year. The ACA, which is the biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades, will go into full effect by 2014. The reform is expected to result in higher costs for the healthcare industry. However, the ACA has generally been welcomed by healthcare companies as the increase in the number of insured individuals will eventually benefit them. Healthcare stocks ended mostly higher on Friday, tracking gains in the broad market. Among the major movers in the sector were Amarin Corporation Plc (NASDAQ: AMRN), Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY), Antares Pharma Inc. (NASDAQ: ATRS), and Anthera Pharmaceuticals Inc.
