The major stock indices are up this morning on news that a stimulus deal could be close. Yesterday, house speaker Nancy Pelosi stated that the negotiators were just about the deal.
Given that it is the most awaited deal at the moment, this positive news could see the market rally all through the day. In this environment of increased optimism, several stocks are outperforming the market and could trade in positive territory all through the day. Some of the top gainers pre-market are as below:
Socket Mobile Inc [NASDAQ: SCKT]
Socket Mobile Inc is one of the top gainers this morning after it released its financial results for the third quarter of 2020. These results are subject to an annual review process in line with goodwill impairment and a part of quarter-end closing procedures.
The company failed to carry out this review in time as a result of COVID-19 complications and uncertainties. That means that the numbers announced today have no goodwill impairment. Sensitive numbers that might be impacted negatively will have an asterisk to denote that there might be some changes.
The company will issue the full report once they complete the goodwill review and have it as form 10-Q for the third quarter.
