Let's start with Camtek. The stock soared after launching its new Eagle product line that supports the advanced packaging market by offering 2-D and 3-D inspection and metrology capabilities on the same platform. Stocks don't often rally on a mere rollout, but Camtek also announced that it has already received orders from leading device manufacturers. 

Endeavour Silver struck it rich after providing an encouraging production update for the second quarter. Endeavour saw its silver production increase 9% to 1.67 million ounces for the period. That was partly offset by a reduction in white gold production, but the real nugget for the market is that the results find Endeavour trending ahead of guidance year to date. 

Glu Mobile continues to gain momentum since rolling out a new game -- Kim Kardashian: Hollywood -- late last month that is soaring in popularity. Glu Mobile's stock has posted three consecutive weeks of double-digit gains, and it's closed higher for weeks in a row. 

"It might be our biggest game of the year," Glu Mobile's CEO told Bloomberg in an interview this past week. Judging by the stock's pop every week since the new game raced to the near the top of iOS and Android app downloads, it's easy to believe the CEO's comments.

TherapeuticsMD didn't call in sick. The developer of therapies for women bumped higher after FBR Capital initiated coverage with an "outperform" rating at a price target of $34. As a refresher, the stock is trading in the single digits. FBR Capital is encouraged by the biotech's hormone replacement pipeline.  

Finally, we have TRW Automotive revving up after announcing that it has received an unsolicited buyout offer. The interested buyer -- and terms of the offer -- weren't revealed, but some reports indicate that the interest is coming from a rival German auto-parts maker.
