Sify Technologies

Sify Technologies’ 21.23-percent growth last week is in keeping with a broader upward trend for the company. This month alone, the company has seen a 19.04-percent rise in share price, while year-to-date it’s seen a 26.89-percent increase.
The India-based company is an integrated information and communications technology solutions and services company. It operates through five segments: telecom services, data center services, cloud and managed services, technology integration services and application integration services.


Cinedigm is a distributor and aggregator of independent movies, television and other short-form content. It operates in four segments: first digital cinema deployment, second digital cinema deployment, digital cinema services and media content and entertainment. Last week, it saw a 19.17-increase in share price, in keeping with its monthly gain of 19.15 percent. Since the start of the year, Cinedigm’s share price has risen by 7.24 percent.
The company’s most important recent news came in February, when it announced that the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel has granted the its request for continued listing. Furthermore, NASDAQ accepted the company’s plan to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the NASDAQ Global Market. That is contingent on Cinedigm evidencing compliance with the minimum $1 bid price requirement by June 7, 2016. 


CounterPath designs, develops and sells software and services that allow enterprises to deliver unified communications services (including voice, video, messaging and collaboration functionality) over IP-based networks.

Since the beginning of the year, the company’s share price has fallen by a significant 14.29 percent. Its recent change in fortune may be attributable to its Q3 2016 earnings release on March 15.

Its software solutions are built for traditional and next-generation network technologies, including broadband networks and the mobile web.
The company’s 9.55-percent jump in share price last week may be attributable to the release of its Q4 2015 earnings after market close on March 15.
