Corinthian Colleges Climbs

The share price of Corinthian Colleges Inc (NASDAQ:COCO) jumped +26.87% early in the day this Thursday, though it’s still trading just cents away from its 52-week low of $0.06. Billionaire investor George Soros initiated a position in the for-profit educational institution during the second quarter of the year.

GTx, Inc. (NASDAQ:GTXI), yet another new Soros pick, got a +15.67% boost this morning. Despite today’s gain, the biotech firm has declined more than -65% in 2014.
