The Dow's fifth straight win is in sight thanks to another strong move higher from Caterpillar (CAT). Three stocks making notable moves today are electric car concern Kandi Technologies Group Inc (NASDAQ:KNDI), drugmaker Paratek Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PRTK), and Chinese video sharing platform Bilibili Inc (NASDAQ:BILI). Let's take a look at what's moving shares of KNDI, PRTK, and BILI.

Tax Credit Has Kandi Technologies Stock Booming

KNDI stock is spiking to its best close since January, up 16% at $6.42, on news the Chinese company's Kandi EX3 and K22 models both qualify for a federal tax credit. In just the past month the shares have gained over 55%, with the 50-day moving average sitting down at $4.33.

This is good news for those who've been pounding long KNDI call options. During the past 10 days at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), more than 3,500 calls have been bought to open, compared to just 72 puts.

FDA Approval Sparks PRTK Shares

PRTK shares are rallying after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the company's lead drug Nuzyra. The stock is trading up 9.1% at $10.08, peeking above the 50-day moving average, a trendline that's acted as stubborn resistance since late June. Overall, Paratek Pharmaceuticals is down over 60% in the past year, yet nine of 10 analysts have "buy" or better ratings right now.

Tencent Investment Keeps Short-Term BILI Rally Going

An investment valued at roughly $318 from Chinese powerhouse Tencent has BILI up 8.9% at $14.49. This extends the recent uptrend the shares have enjoyed since dipping below $10 back in mid-August, riding atop the 20-day moving average along the way. However, the security was trading above $20 as recently as June.

There's a notable amount of short interest on the Chinese stock, which only began trading publicly in the U.S. back in March. Going by average daily trading volumes, it would take BILI short sellers almost one week to cover their positions.
