VirnetX (VHC), which skyrocketed yesterday on the USPTO's denial of Apple's (AAPL) request to reexamine a key patent, is up 2% premarket following positive comments from Cowen. The firm thinks the USPTO's move improves VirnetX's position ahead of a Jan. 5 Markman hearing, and thinks VirnetX's patent claims will largely hold up. It believes shares can double in 2012.
