Following our mission which is to keep you updated on all things NASDAQ, we have here our Gainers’ page. Here you will find information on all the stocks that improved in value over the course of the trading day (ie the gainers). Our search algorithms as well as the moderators, curators and editors of this page work tirelessly to ensure that the information presented on this page is accurate at all times, so that it can be most useful in your investment decisions. We pride ourselves on the reliability and validity of our information. The methodology is this: on the page, you will find the name of the traded company on one tab, their share price on the next, the dollar change in the value of their stock price after that and finally, that dollar change expressed as a percentage of the original stock price ie percentage gain.
