Aixtron Aktiengesellschaft (NASDAQ: AIXG) closed at $24.80 yesterday and shares are trading up about 7.3% pre-market at $26.62 on over 135,000 shares.
BP plc (NYSE: BP) is trading up this morning after Oppenheimer raised the rating to outperform based upon valuations and based upon it selling off too much. It is also in the process of its top-kill efforts. The ADR is up over 4% at $44.15 this morning.
FSI International, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSII) closed at $2.75 yesterday and shares are now up about 24% at $3.41 on 59,000 shares after the company raised its Q3 guidance. The 52-week range is $0.32 to $4.56.
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (LEHMQ) is dead for all practical purposes, but late yesterday came word that it is suing JPMorgan for billions in damages for what was effectively illegal access of capital due to its clearing arrangement in the final day and hours of operation that helped push it into bankruptcy.
NetApp, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) is trading up after it beat earnings expectations despite the initial reaction being mixed. Shares are up almost 8% and flirting with a $35.00 handle in pre-market trading. The 52-week range is $17.86 to $36.49.
Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) is down, but not on a court loss. It did get a delay though, as the US ITC put off the decision on Rambus’ patents for two more months. Shares are down over 7% at $23.00 on what is still rather thin trading volume. Average volume is 1.88 million shares and the 52-week range is $12.27 to $26.00.
VeriFone Systems, Inc (NYSE: PAY) beat earnings and raised guidance and is now affirmed that the turnaround has moved back into growth mode. Shares are up 5.5% at $18.26 but on rather thin volume so far in the pre-market.
