While the American stock markets remained closed on Monday due to the holiday, the Canadian markets were open and trading continued as normal. As the American markets reopen today, it may be a good time for investors to consider taking a look at some of the stocks that had made it to the news on Monday in a big way and had managed to make notable moves. Here is a quick look at four stocks that you could look into before the trading hours begin.

American Manganese (TSX:AMY.V) (OTCQB: AMYZF) – On Monday, American Manganese Inc had c come into major focus among investors and its stock had soared by as much as 22.22% for the day amidst heavy interest. That being said, it should be noted that there was no news about the company and the rally in the stock may have been brought about by news from the previous week.

Back on May 26, the company had come on to the news cycle after it announced that the initial stage of the demonstration plant project for ReciycLiCo had commenced. It was a major new announcement and one that may have led to considerable excitement among investors. It may be a good idea to keep an eye on it today.

Sekur Private Data Ltd (OTCQX: SWISF) (CSE: SKUR) – The next stock that could be in focus today is that of the cybersecurity firm Sekur Private Data Ltd and in fact, it had come into sharp focus among Canadian investors yesterday. Media coverage of a company can often be beneficial for its stock and hence, yesterday’s developments may be important for Sekur.

It was announced yesterday that the company’s Chief Executive Officer Alain Ghiai was going to appear for an interview in New To The Street show on Fox Business yesterday. It remains to be seen if the development produces any kind of boost for the stock today.

Smart Employee Benefits Inc  (TSX: SEB.V) (OTCQB:SEBFF) was another notable gainer with a jump of 14.29%.  The company had come into focus among investors back on March 31 after it announced its financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter as well as the fiscal year, both of which had ended on November 30 last year. It may actually be a good time right now for investors to consider taking a look at the highlights of the financial results.

In the 2021 fiscal year, the company managed to bring in revenues to the tune of as much as $61.7 million and that reflected a year-on-year rise of 1.9% from the $60.6 million in revenues that Smart Employee Benefits had generated in 2020.

ImmunoPrecise Antibodies Ltd. – (NASDAZ:IPA)  (TSX.V:IPA) – Healthcare firm IPA was another one that had managed to garner considerable focus in the Canadian markets on Monday and had closed at C$7 a share. It will be interesting to see if the stock manages to get any traction today.

That being said, there was no specific news about the company yesterday. The last time the company was in the news was on May 9 when it announced that its Belgian subsidiary unit Biostrand had been awarded a grant to the tune of 460000 Euros. That had come as a significant boost at the time for the stock.

Therma Bright Inc (TSXV:THRM) (OTCQB:TBRIF) – Last but certainly not least, it is the medical technology firm Therma Bright that could be the one to track this morning. There has not been any news recently about the company but earlier on in the month on May 10 the company had made a key announcement. It had announced that it was going to submit a review application for its AcuVid™ COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Saliva Test to Health Canada. That was clearly a major announcement and may have brought the stock into focus among investors.
