Ameresco, Inc. AMRC was a big mover last session, as its shares rose almost 6% on the day.

This led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range $6.60 to $7.15 in the past one-month time frame.
