Shares of Aetrium, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATRM) surged 150% last week after SA contributor Small-Cap Momentum Advisors pens the bull case, arguing that shares should be valued at $15-$20.The author bases the thesis on a recent management shake-up that saw activist Jeffrey Eberwein appointed Chairman. Eberwein and his fund, Lone Star Investors, have a 5.6% stake in ATRM.Q1, the author says, "should be a monumental turnaround quarter," with the company booking revenues of a previously-announced $2.1M order by the quarter's end. The order alone represents almost 2x Q1 2013 revenue, and is indicative of "significant traction," the author notes.

Though still below its opening price of $45.10, Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) has rallied 6% from its Monday close of $39.06. The gains come ahead of Monday coverage launches from the company's IPO underwriters. If history is any guide, bullish reports should easily outweigh bearish ones; the investor reaction might depend a lot on how upbeat analysts are in the face of a valuation that's still around ~40x 2013E sales (after factoring options/RSUs). Ahead of the launches, Twitter has picked up four bullish ratings, eight neutral ones, and three bearish ones non-underwriting firms. The neutral/bearish arguments almost uniformly revolve around Twitter's multiples. Wunderlich, which is reiterating a Sell, notes pre-IPO underwriter estimates were well below current consensus forecasts. The firm is reiterating a $34 PT, and maintaining a subdued view of Twitter's efforts to sell ads to TV advertisers and e-commerce firms.
