    Orbital Energy Group Inc [NASDAQ: OEG]

    Orbital Energy Group, Inc is a top gainer in pre-market trading. Though it has no major news, the stock is riding on strong quarterly results a few weeks ago. The financial report shows the company’s financial performance in the just-ended financial year, capturing the effects of the ongoing global pandemic of COVID-19. The company recorded a gross profit of $1 million despite the tumultuous pandemic period but had an operating loss of $7.2 million as compared with the previous year where they recorded an operating loss of $3.2 million. This year’s operating loss, however, is also partly due to the acquisition of Reach Construction Group. Jim O’Neil, the CEO, and vice-chairman of the company noted their continued transformation in the energy sector despite the challenges most corporations have been facing this year.

    Rockwell Medical Inc [NASDAQ: RMTI]

    Rockwell Medical Inc is another stock riding on the strength of recent news that could impact on its bottom-line.
