Contract manufacturer WSI Industries (NASDAQ:WSCI) saw its shares spike Wednesday, a day after reporting fiscal third-quarter earnings rose sharply amid a 45 per cent rise in revenue, driven by its core business units.

The Monticello, Minnesota-based metal component manufacturer caters to the aerospace, defence, energy, semiconductor and medical sectors.
