Here's Why Moneygram International Surged 14%


Shares of Moneygram International Inc (NASDAQ: MGI) surged on Monday after the company announced the extension of its new partnership with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT).

Shares of Moneygram opened for trading at $5.56 and hit an intra-day high of $7.09. However, the stock gave up some of its gains and was trading higher by 13.58 percent at $6.02 heading into Monday's final hour of trading.
