management stock following financial guidance. Here’s some small stocks making
big moves on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 (as of 4 pm EST):

Santacruz Silver Mining Ltd. (TSXV:
) shares jumped as much as 29% before ending down 4% to $0.135 on
Tuesday after the silver miner announced third-quarter operating results from
the Rosario Mine in Mexico, which included a 4.4% increase from Q2 in silver
equivalent produced ounces to 277,487, along with a 11% increase in head grade
to 356.87 g/t silver equivalent ounces.

shares of Progressive Waste Solutions

expects to report consolidated third-quarter revenue of about $489 million
versus analysts’ consensus $495.5 million. The company also lowered its full-year
EBITDA outlook to between $480 million and $485 million versus its previous
view of between $500 million and $515 million.

Canopy Growth Corporation (TSXV:

win for the Liberal Party in Canada’s federal election. Party leader Justin
Trudeau has spoken in past about loosening Canada’s marijuana laws, which would
benefit legal growers such as Canopy Growth.
