Sirius XM Radio Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI) is next, with over $38.5 million worth of shares changing hands today so far.

Thirdly over $37 million worth of the common stock of Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) have been traded so far today, with the stock rising 3.21% to $15.26. The company’s stock price has recently benefitted from optimism surrounding prospective cost-savings due to the closure of its Australian plants, as well as rising car sales in China, which were up 37% in April. The stock is now at its 52-week high.

Finally we come to Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), with over $37 million shares traded so far today, although as of writing the stock is down by 0.5%.
