That increase in price comes alongside heavy trading of VIOT stock. As of this writing, more than 26 million shares have changed hands. That’s an incredible spike in trading compared to its daily average trading volume of roughly 407,000 shares.

So why exactly is VIOT stock up on Friday? The company doesn’t have any new press releases or SEC filings. Instead, it looks like this is continued movement from a rally on Thursday. That saw the stock gain 21.9%.
