Taser Shares Jump 10% on New Orders


Shares of stun gun maker Taser International shot up 10% after the company announced it had received three international orders for its Taser X26 devices plus accessories totaling over $2.3 million. Taser stock has given back much of the gains, but is still sharply higher.

These orders are expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2006, the company said in a statement.
