LDTomahawk, WI 3/25/2013 (Expedated) – Here is a look at some of the volume leaders on this last Monday of the month.

As usual Bank of America Corporation (BAC) is out front trading a little under their average today with 133 million shares exchanging hands. BAC was down slightly off about 1.5%.

This comes on news that there are other suitors knocking on the door with what seems to be  better deals for Dell (NASDAQ: DELL  ). Fifty  million shares traded hands today sending the value up almost 3%. It is now rumored that there are three different deals on the table including the Michael Dell/Silver Lake Partners deal we have been hearing so much about. Nothing wrong with a little competition.

Oracle (ORCL) is still trading above its daily average today seeing over 32 million shares trade hands.

Oracle has been moving and shaking things up lately as they have now agreed to acquire Tekelec, which is a maker of mobile software, to boost the company’s position as a vendor to the communications industry. Oracle’s move comes roughly one month after it announced one of the company’s  largest acquisitions, which was the purchase of the telecom network gear maker Acme Packet (APKT) for about $2 billion.

Tekelec’s software helps communications companies better manage the growing number of multimedia applications as well as growing mobile data traffic on their networks.

“The proliferation of smart devices, mobile applications and connected services has led to an exponential increase in network signaling and data traffic,” Oracle said in its release. “Service providers require intelligent network control technologies to address these increased network workloads as well as to deploy and monetize cloud and over-the-top services.”
