    The reconstitution of the Russell indexes coming up in June, Credit Suisse aims to anticipate who's in and who's out. The rules-based approach of the Russell 2000 has allowed arbitragers to profit each summer by front-running the moves, making the Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) a poorer play for small cap fans than IJR . Expected among the top 25 adds are ARCP, SRPT, PBYI, ACAD, and WSTC. Among the top 25 deletes: CPST, FCEL, CHKE, OMER, and EML.

    Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) soars 51% after saying that the results of a Phase III trial of its Pimavanserin drug, plus other data, are enough for the company to file an application for FDA approval. Acadia will not now conduct a confirmatory phase III trial that was due to start this month. Pimavanserin is designed to treat Parkinson's disease psychosis. (PR)

    Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD +10.1%) gets a big bump on a notable mention from Jim Cramer last Friday CNBC's on Mad Money. "This is the real deal," He says. "There was some profit taking this week, but you should hold onto it. ACAD is a fantastic spec." Additionally, Seeking Alpha contributor Brian Nichols added his two cents as well, calling the stock the safest bet in the biotech space right now after Pimavanserin's encouraging Phase 3 trial results.

    Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD +1.7%) gets a lift this morning after Jefferies initiates coverage with a Buy and a $13 price target. The firm says that its lead drug in development, pimavanserin, is a treament for Parkinson's disease psychosis for which there is currently no FDA-approved counterpart. ACAD recently reported positive Phase 3 data, and Jefferies sees the drug as a highly attractive licensing/acquisition target for pharma companies.
