Hanmi Financial (HAFC - Get Report) rallied for a third straight session, jumping by 54 cents, or 26.3%, to $2.59, following a report in a South Korea newspaper Tuesday that said Woori America Bank (WF - Get Report) is considering taking a 51% majority stake in the Korean holding company.

Volume topped 8.57 million shares, compared to the three-month average daily volume of 66,000, according to Yahoo! Finance.
