U.S. stocks are struggling for upside ahead of this weekend's presidential vote in France. Among specific stocks on the move this afternoon are manufacturing giant Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE:HON), biotech issue Aurinia Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:AUPH), and bank stock Carver Bancorp Inc (NASDAQ:CARV). Here's a quick look at what's moving shares of HON, AUPH, and CARV.

Honeywell Stock Hits All-Time High After Earnings

HON stock earlier hit a record high of $128.30, and was last seen up 2.4% at $126.83, after the company topped Wall Street's first-quarter earnings estimates and raised its full-year outlook. The shares are now up 20.5% since their October low near $105, and options traders at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) have been betting on extended upside. HON stock has a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 2.86 across these exchanges, which tops 73% of comparable readings from the past year. 

More Positive Drug Data for Aurinia Pharmaceuticals

AUPH shares were last seen 2.7% higher at $7.19, after the company's experimental treatment for lupus nephritis, voclosporin, met all its goals in a mid-stage study. Not only is stock volume surging as a result, but AUPH options are trading at four times the expected intraday rate, with most of the attention focusing on calls. It's been a huge year for Aurinia Pharmaceuticals stock, which sports a year-to-date gain of 242%. 

Carver Bancorp Pares Gains After Hitting 52-Week High

CARV stock jumped to as high as $6.61 -- an annual high -- and was last seen 20% higher at $4.79, after being halted for volatility earlier. Today's move makes Carver Bancorp one of the top stocks on the Nasdaq, and puts the shares on pace for their best finish since December. While it's not immediately clear what's behind today's sharp price action, the shares have a long history of volatile trading.
