You On Demand (YOD) Surges on Heavy Volume

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- You On Demand Holdings (YOD - Get Report) is surging on Monday, with trading volume far higher than normal.

By late morning, shares have added 26.6% to $4.19, and 3.2 million shares have changed hands, 13 times its three-month average daily trading volume.

The stock added to gains it made over Friday after a SeekingAlpha article pegged it as the "Netflix of China." Since Friday, shares of the video-on-demand service have gained 64.1%.

SeekingAlpha argued You On Demand's exclusive pay-per-view and video-on-demand license in China will allow it to increase its top line by inking distribution rights with major U.S. studios.

"In addition to providing us with funding to assist our company at this important inflection point in our corporate evolution, we also look forward to continuing to benefit from [C-Media CEO Xuesong] Song's tremendous experience and success doing business in China, as well as C-Media's mobile industry expertise," McMahon continued.
