Perhaps anticipating good news, buyers queued up before the start of trading. The stock gapped up seven cents on the first trade of the day and never looked back. By the end of the first half hour of trading, the stocked tacked on an additional gain of 23 cents to $2.45. Buyers continued to put the pedal to the metal as share prices zoomed to an intraday and annual high of $2.66 before 90 minutes had expired in the trading day. As the lunch hour on the east coast approached, buyers appeared to run out of gas as the stock retreated. For the remainder of the afternoon, traders exchanged shares in a narrow range with the stock closing at $2.45 for a gain of almost 14%. The number of shares traded on the day easily exceeded the 16,000 registered on an average day. The total volume for the session tallied a little over 150,000 shares. Traders have tonight to decide whether today’s action marks a new chapter for the stock and if it sets the stage for higher prices in the weeks to come.
Since shares traded at a 52-week low of $1.60 in January, the stock has marched steadily higher for a gain of 60%. The stock, however, trades quite thin on some days as represented by the average daily volume.
