    Oh nevermind. Huge volume

    The percentages are relative to the stock price at the previous close. Look at the stock price and compare the increases.

    AMD is up 70 cents (20%)
    IBM is up $7 dollars (11%).

    Would you rather have a 70 cents increase or a $7 increase. Of course it also depends on how much stock you have with each company too.

    Don't look at percentages alone as a measurement of gain or loss. It's all relative. You also need to look at the actual numbers.

    It's sad to see that some people solely rely on the percentages. Big mistake when investing in the market.
