Agilysys, Inc. (NASDAQ:AGYS) is trading near the top of the Nasdaq, following a post-earnings bull note. The software specialist reported fiscal second-quarter earnings and revenue that beat analysts' expectations, leading Craig-Hallum to lift its price target to $90 from $80. Last seen up 23.4% at $78.85, AGYS added 43.5% during the last 12 months.

Garrett Motion Inc (NASDAQ:GTX) stock is down 5.8% at $6.77 at last glance, after the company's third-quarter revenue fell below forecasts. While profits of 23 cents per share edged out estimates, that revenue miss is driving the security into a 9% year-to-date deficit as it stands as one of the Nasdaq's worst midday performers.
