Conolog, Jackson Hewitt: Late Day Volume Plays

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Several stocks trading near $5 were moving on above-average volume during Wednesday's session.

Conolog (CNLG) surged by $1.15, or 89.2%, to $2.44 after the company said it has completed field testing and started production of its GlowWorm fiber optic detector. GlowWorm t will allow utilities and other customers to quickly determine the source of a fiber optic signal failure without the need to cut the cable.

The offering of units consists of stock and warrants, priced at $2 per unit. TheStreet's Adam Feuerstein questioned whether GenVec's financing implies anything about the upcoming interim analysis of the phase III study of TNFerade in pancreatic cancer. Volume topped 21.3 million shares, compared to the 50-day average daily volume of 3.18 million.

Jackson Hewitt (JTX) shares fell by 66 cents, or 18.8%, to $2.86 after the company said in a regulatory filing that it has commitments for only half the funds it had last year to offer refund anticipation loans for 2010's tax season.
