Inseego Corp (NASDAQ:INSG) gained over 15% in the market on Thursday to end the day at $1.13. The move upwards follows two days of the shares trading under $1 and establishing a new 52-week low. Trading was heavy. INSG shares have a 30-day, daily average volume of 207,800 but traded over 1.1 million shares in today’s trading.
