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. On Monday, Poniard disclosed the failed phase III study of picoplatin in small cell lung cancer. The 50-day average daily volume for Poniard is 2.2 million, according to the Nasdaq.

China Sunergy (CSUN) jumped by 37 cents, or 8.8%, to $4.60 in the premarket session after the company reported third-quarter adjusted earnings of 19 cents a share, well ahead of the Thomson Reuters average estimate of 2 cents a share. Full-year shipments will be between 190 megawatts of solar cells to 200 MW, which is at the high end previous guidance range. The 50-day average daily volume for China Sunergy is 304,000, according to the Nasdaq.

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.
