Eagle & Beagle

Eagle

Our eagle this week isn't flying all that high, but even a mild updraft is pleasing to shareholders.

Shares of ADDvantage Technologies Group Inc. rose 8.2 percent last week, although that price hike amounted to just an 18-cent gain. The stock closed Friday at $2.38.

The Broken Arrow company sells cable TV equipment to other companies and operates a string of repair centers. During its most recent conference call last month, CEO David Humphrey said that rough weather that damaged installed equipment in other parts of the country boosted sales.

The company also reported that its profits doubled in the quarter that ended Dec. 31. That net income grew to about $800,000 from about $400,000 in the same period a year earlier.

Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust fell 20 percent last week, closing Friday at $13.74 after hitting a 52-week low of $13.07 on Wednesday. The CHKR units were heavily traded the last three days of the week.
