Tuesday's Small-Cap Winners & Losers

Small-cap stocks were buoyed by the cheery broader market Tuesday, and among the biggest movers was Bob Evans Farms (BOBE - Get Report).

Shares rose 15.2% to $29.60 on the heels of the chain restaurant operator's fiscal second-quarter earnings. Excluding one-time items, Bob Evans reported income of $14.5 million, or 43 cents a share, compared with 36 cents a share in the year-ago quarter. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial were expecting EPS of 39 cents.

Also surging on earnings was (BIDZ). The online jewelry retailer reported a third-quarter profit of $3.6 million, or 14 cents a share, compared with $1 million, or 4 cents a share, in the year-ago quarter. Analysts were looking for EPS of 11 cents. Shares of the Culver City, Calif., company jumped $3.20, or 22%, to $17.80.

New Jersey's Hill International (HINT) saw shares climb 10.5% to $11.05 after the construction services and management firm posted third-quarter income of 15 cents a share, or $3.8 million, beating analysts' expectations of 11 cents a share. Last year, the company made 12 cents a share, or $2.9 million.

On the losing side, shares of Superconductor Tech (SCON - Get Report) were falling 7.8% after the California-based communication-equipment maker reported a third-quarter loss of $2 million, or 16 cents a share. That's a slight improvement over last year, but revenue also sank 30.3% to $4.1 million. Shares were off 60 cents to $7.10.

TravelCenters of America (TA - Get Report), a franchiser of highway refreshment areas, dropped 27.8% after a disappointing third-quarter report.
