Below are highlights from Benzinga's daily coverage of microcap securities making big moves:

Tandy Brands Accessories I

Shares of Tandy Brands Accessories (NASDAQ: TBAC), the Dallas, TX designer and marketer of mens, womens, and childrens accessories, rose 75% Friday on 21 times the average daily volume.

Tandy Brands Accessories reported financial results Friday for its second quarter and six-month periods ended December 31, 2011.

Net sales for the second quarter were $45.4 million, an increase of $2.5 million versus the prior year second quarter. Gifts segment net sales of $22.7 million increased by $6.0 million over the prior year period due to increased holiday shipments as a result of organic growth from the Company's Totes license and new sales from the Eddie Bauer license. Net sales in the accessories segment were $22.7 million for the second quarter, a decline of $3.5 million from fiscal 2011. The decline reported in the Accessories segment net sales was a result of lower sales in exited product categories and lower levels of replenishment orders by the Company's largest customer.

Tandy Brands Accessories closed at $1.82 on Friday.

SED International Holdings

Shares of SED International Holdings (NYSE: SED), the Lawrenceville, GA distributor of computer technology, consumer electronics, small appliances, housewares, and personal care products to channel partners and retailers in the United States, rose 49% Friday on 47 times the average daily volume.
