Today's Small-Cap Winners and Losers

Kadant (KAI - Get Report) gained after the pulp and paper industry supplier said it received the largest single order in its history.

The order, for about $16 million, covers stock-preparation systems for a paper producer in Asia. Shares of Kadant were up 83 cents, or 4%, to $21.39.

Lionbridge Technologies (LIOX - Get Report) surged after the company was upgraded to outperform from market perform by Piper Jaffray. The firm also lifted its price target to $10 from $7.

"With the recent acquisition of Bowne's globalization business," the report said, " the company has emerged as by far the largest player in the globalization industry." Lionbridge is a provider of globalization and testing services. The company combines global onshore, near-shore and offshore resources with proven program management methodologies to deliver value throughout a client's product and content lifecycle, from development through globalization, testing and maintenance. Shares added 61 cents, or 7.8%, to $8.46.

Oplink Communications (OPLK) slumped after the provider of networking components and subsystems was downgraded to neutral from buy at Merriman Curhan Ford. The firm attributed the decision to "concerns about the potential for inventory-building at a major customer and a lack of earnings leverage to support valuations much in excess of current levels."

Shares of Oplink dropped $1.64, or 8.7%, to $17.21.

NaviSite (NAVI - Get Report), a provider of IT hosting and services, saw its shares climb more than 40% after the company said it launched two new microsites. The microsites are devoted entirely to the company's colocation and dedicated-hosting offerings. NaviSite was higher by $1.18, or 42.1%, to $3.98.

Shares of Marten Transport (MRTN - Get Report) skidded after the company said first-quarter earnings will probably be 19 cents to 22 cents a share. Marten, a carrier of food and consumer packaged goods, blamed an unexpected slowdown in customer demand.

On average, analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call were looking for a profit of 26 cents a share. Marten was falling $3.54, or 15.2%, to $19.79.
