SMART Global (SGH) and Harmonic (HLIT) — two Tech stocks — gained nearly 25% in today’s trading. Three Energy stocks followed the two big Tech winners with moves of 11%+. McDermott (MDR) gained 12.89%, Pioneer Energy (PES) gained 12.5%, and Noble Energy gained 11.17%. Note that Pioneer and Noble have extremely low share price levels at this point, so just a small change in price represents a big percentage move. WD-40 (WDFC) is a stock we highlighted in a post yesterday for reporting a triple play, and it shows up on the biggest winners list as well with a gain of 8.55% on the day.
Below are price charts for SGH and HLIT — yesterday’s two biggest gainers. SGH had been in a steep 12+ month downtrend before yesterday’s move, while HLIT looks much different, breaking out to new highs from what was already a nice uptrend channel.
