NN Inc. (NNBR - Free Report) shares ended the last trading session 10.1% higher at $7.82. The jump came on an impressive volume with a higher-than-average number of shares changing hands in the session. This compares to the stock's 2.6% gain over the past four weeks.

The last trading session’s price surge was driven by NN’s impressive results for the fourth quarter and 2020. Also, expectations of pre-pandemic level volumes in Power Solutions and Mobile Solutions as well as cost-containment, driving adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization in 2021, added strength.
