In company news, Centrus Energy Corp. ( LEU ) advanced Monday after the uranium producer regained compliance with listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange.
The company returned to compliance nearly 18 months after the stock exchange first warned it no longer met NYSE rules requiring listed companies to maintain a minimum market capitalization. Since that time, LEU completed a prearranged bankruptcy reorganization in April 2013 and a 1-for-25 reverse stock split in July 2013.
The company had a market capitalization of around $31.4 million entering today's session. Under NYSE rules, the stock will be subject to a 12-month follow-up period to ensure that it does not again fall out of compliance.
LEU shares recently were ahead nearly 5% at $6.50 apiece, easing slightly from a session high of $6.58 a share. The stock has traded within a 52-week range of $5.92 to $135.71 a share, declining more than 90% over the past 12 months.
