Monday's After-Hours Movers Led By Vascular Biogenics, Ultragenyx And Red Hat

Shares of Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT), which rose 2.32 percent on Monday, were down about 1 percent after hours.

Despite what the markets response might suggest, the software provider reported Q2 earnings of $0.47 per share, $0.03 above the Streets consensus estimate and the managements guidance, on revenue of $504.15 million, also atop estimates and guidance.

Vascular Biogenics Ltd (NASDAQ:VBLT) continued to spike on Monday, gaining more than 18.25 percent, after news came out on Friday that the company will present at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO). After the bell rang on Monday, the stock was up another 13 percent.

Another biopharmaceutical stock surging in Mondays after-hours was Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc (NASDAQ:RARE),up more than 7 percent. The upswing seems to have been triggered by no particular news, but rather looks like a correction of the 13.94 percent decline seen during the day.
