Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of Complete Production Services (NYSE: CPX ) soared more than 10% on intraday trading after reporting revenue and earnings that soundly beat Wall Street projections.
