China Finance Online (JRJC - Get Report) shares were also trading higher, up 77 cents, or 10.9%, to $7.85 in Thursday's after-hours session after the online financia data company said it ahd a first-quarter profit of 14 cents a share on revenue of $15.2 million, coming in ahead of the consensus target for earnings of 4 cents a share on revenue of $13.5 million.
