The stocks making noise in regular trading continued to be among the most active issues in the extra session Tuesday, and bargain hunters bid up a few of the day's biggest losers.

Nextel ( NXTL), which was hammered in regular trading, moved higher by 3.6% to $5.23 in late Instinet action. Ciena ( CIEN) was inching up 0.6% to $9.05 following a day where the networker dropped 11% after issuing a profit warning.

Sun Micro ( SUNW) was the volume leader after the close, trading down 1.8% to $9.97. Maxim Integrated Products ( MXIM) was also one of the most actively traded stocks, dropping 1.9% to $52.79.
