AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ACRX - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 20% 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 trend for the company—as the stock is now up 35.4% in the past one-month time frame.

The stock price might have appreciated in anticipation of an FDA approval for AcelRx's pain medication Dsuvia.

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
