Halliburton

(HAL) - Get Report

was the leading volume mover in after-hours Instinet trading, and the oilfield services outfit managed to reclaim a few pennies after the company's shares were shredded in regular trading.

Shares of Halliburton were gaining 4.6% to $12.55 after the

4 p.m. EST close on the

New York Stock Exchange. In regular activity, Halliburton plunged 42.5% to $12 after a

jury ordered it to pay $30 million in an asbestos suit. The shares are near their 10-year low.
