Neptune Technologies (NASDAQ:NEPT) sure doesn’t have its head lost in the clouds, as a reported $5.36M Q4 revenue–up 31%–gave a huge boost to the company’s stock. Shares rose 10.34% to $3.84, and they have traded in a 52-week range of $2.02 to $4.66.
Corinthian Colleges, Inc. (NASDAQ:COCO): It’s a wild card for the education stocks, who continue to go up and down based on their perceived susceptibility to the ongoing Senate debate to stop the doubling of the federal student loan rate by July. While the future of the 3.4% rate is uncertain, analysts say a deal is likely to be completed before the November elections. Corinthian Colleges took a slice of the stock profit pie in recent days, and shares closed at $2.82, up 10.16%. They have traded in a 52-week range of $1.24 to $5.61.
