NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) beat earnings and guided higher… Shares are up over 2% on more than 1.2 million shares at $23.89 on last look.

PDL BioPharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: PDLI) may be due to spreads or something trade related after it slid during the day by 7.5%… After a $5.03 close we saw trades up at $5.16 and $5.44… again maybe just the after-hours shenanigans.

Seahawk Drilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAWK) is still SeaChicken now that it is bankrupt, but shares are up marginally from the close of $4.22 at $4.30 on over 900,000 shares since the close.
