 22 Filtered Mid-Day Market Movers Recap

Market Pulse trends and observations last week show that out of our newly added 22 filtered movers, Healthcare was back on top with 8 stocks, followed by Industrials with 5 names, 4 Technology stocks, 2 each for Mining and Energy, with 1 Retail company. Some of these stocks may have already made their move, while others are still trending and remain on our daily Hot Sheet.

Here's our Dec. 2 - Dec. 6 breakdown:
- 8 Healthcare (Pharma/Thera/BioTech/Food: XOMA ABIO CNAT OCLS NNRX, Medical Devices/Equip./Systems: VSCI INFU ETRM)

- 2 Energy (O&G/Africa/Canada: EGY V.ALX)

Organizing stocks in this way is subjective as companies often qualify for more than one sector or sub-sector. Each name is grouped in the most apparent category, to help us and our members get a feel for the small-cap market's pulse of what's moving right now and on our radar going into a new week.
