Canada Southern Petroleum (CSPLF) surged on news that Petro Canada's (PCZ) Nosara Holdings unit increased its offer to acquire the company to $13 a share, up from an earlier offer of $11 and topping Canadian Oil Sands Trust's June 30 bid of $11.10. Canada Southern Petroleum was gaining $1.73, or 14.8%, to $13.40 recently.

Fronteer Development Group (FRG) strengthened after the company said that Aurora Energy Resources, in which it holds a 49.3% interest, reported new wider and higher-grade drill intersections that continue to expand the Michelin uranium deposit. Shares of Fronteer Development Group, which engages in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties, gained 51 cents, or 11.6%, to $4.89.

Wegener (WGNR), a provider of products for TV, audio and data-distribution networks, jumped 22% following its latest quarterly earnings report. The company said revenue for the third quarter rose to $6.6 million from $4.3 million a year ago. Wegener earned $138,000, or 1 cent a share, vs. last year's loss of $620,000, or 5 cents a share. Shares were higher by 26 cents to $1.40.

Retalix (RTLX) retreated after the software provider said it would see lower-than-expected results for the second quarter because of delays in the delivery of several projects. The company said revenue should be above $44 million, while it expects to lose 8 cents to 13 cents a share. Analysts polled by Thomson First Call are looking for earnings of 21 cents a share on revenue of $51.3 million.

Shares lost $3.43, or 16.7%, to $17.10.

Smart & Final (SMF) stumbled after the food warehouse operator said second-quarter income dropped from a year ago.
