1. Harman International ( HAR) is the leader of the pack with a share price gain of 56.7% in October. Nevertheless, its shares are down 2.9% this year.

The recent jump came after the audio-equipment maker posted a higher first-quarter profit than expected by Wall Street. The results were helped by sales to both consumers and auto makers that install its car audio systems as original equipment. Harman International has also seen demand pick up for its products used in sound reinforcement, and in the broadcast and recording industries.
