|Includes: Craft Brew Alliance Inc (BREW), GRRF

China GrenTech (NASDAQ:GRRF) total revenues increase by 127% year-over-year and Craft Brewers Alliance (HOOK) surges in pre-market anticipation of earnings.

As earnings season winds down, China GrenTech (GRRF) and Craft Brewers Alliance (HOOK) really stand out today against modest broad market trading. Even though Japan's Nikkei 225 stock average added 80.14 points or 0.8% to set a 10-month high of 10,597.33, U.S. markets were tame.


Gaining more than 40% ($1.64) in early trading, China GrenTech Corp. Ltd., (GRRF) easily topped its 3-Month average daily trading volume of 70,009 shares by ten times within hours of the open and had surpassed 2,208,489 at the time of this writing. GRRF has a new market cap of $5.58 million and its shares are currently trading on the Nasdaq in the $5.75 range.

GRRF Q2 09 numbers released in its report late yesterday brought the buyers out this morning. GRFF reported a total revenue increase of 127% year-over-year and a gross profit increase of %70. The GRFF wireless segment increased revenues by 116% and revenues from its base station products increased by 182%. Those are some numbers. GRRF diluted EPS was $0.08.     

GRRF makes and sells wireless coverage products and sells its services in the People's Republic of China. Its wireless coverage products include repeaters, trunk amplifiers, and base station amplifiers.

At $5.75, GRRF will set a new 52-week high. Its 52-week low was $0.01 set on 09-29-08. At $5.75, GRRF is ahead of both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages.
