NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Several stocks trading under $5 were poised to move on above-average volume during Wednesday's session.

Poniard Pharmaceuticals (PARD) rose by 18 cents, or 7.3%, to $2.66 in the premarket session one day after the company said current study data shows a combination of its drug candidate picoplatin and chemotherapy works about as well as a standard chemotherapy regimen as a treatment for colorectal cancer.

Netlist (NLST - Get Report) gained 30 cents, or 7.3%, to $4.40 in the premarket session, continuing the recently rally sparked by the introduction of the company's HyperCloud product, the first 16-gigabyte, 2 vRank memory module for computer servers.
