13-week gains: 59%
Another relatively small tech stock that’s been doing big things? Global telecom company Alcatel Lucent (NYSE:ALU), which is involved in mobile, set, IP and optics technology.
The stock has impressive 59% gains in the books since late October — almost double that of Facebook’s climb and around 10 times the gains of the broader market.
Of course, much of that climb has simply been a matter of regaining ground lost in 2012; the stock’s value shrunk around 60% in the month of April alone. Its current price of $1.75 is still 70% off from its high above $6 just over a year ago.
