Heckmann -- the fracking water cleaner that will change its name to Nuverra after completing two major environmental-services purchases -- moved higher after reporting a quarterly profit of $0.06 a share. Analysts were bracing for a small loss.

BlackBerry moved higher as the country's two largest wireless carriers began taking preorders for the smartphone pioneer's first handset running the BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system.

Amicus has several drugs working their way through the long clinical trials approval process.
