Stock Alert: Build-A-Bear Workshop Climbs 14%

Shares of Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc. (BBW), a specialty retailer of plush animals and related products, are gaining more than 14 percent or $0.97 in Thursday's morning trade at $7.76.

The stock has recorded strong gains in the past two sessions, including touching a new 52-week high on Wednesday, despite no company-specific news.
