Along with the price, the traded volume also rose up tremendously to exceed 1.5 million shares for the day. This is a huge success for AXT as compared to its average volume of 538 thousand shares traded.

Obviously, the sudden stock price move was due to the latest announcement by the company. According to it, the revenue of AXT has increased by 77% during the second quarter of this year. The company also reported that its net income totaled $5.5 million, which is 0.17 profit per share. Though AXT has suffered a net loss, this year's results beat the analysts' expectations.
