THQ stock perks up as Humble Bundle crests $3M, company CEO and contribute

THQ stocks have perked up slightly as the company's Humble Bundle crested $3 million, with company CEO Brian Farrell and World of Wargaming developer sitting at the top of the donors list, as displayed on the Humble Bundle website.

Following the Humble Bundle's launch on Thursday, Nov. 29, THQ stock rose 37.96 percent on Friday to just over $1.60, an improvement over its value of $1.07 on Nov. 28. Stock is currently sitting at $1.36, just above the minimum amount of $1 needed for NASDAQ listing.

In May the company's stock hit a record low of $0.57, and after being threatened with NASDAQ delisting the publisher opted for a 1-for-10 reverse stock split, bumping back the figure's decimal point and bringing up stock value to $5.16.

As of this post the bundle has brought in nearly $3.4 million from 594,077 backers, including Farrell's pledge of $1,650, Wargaming's of $1,600.48 and anonymous backer McJohn's $1,650.01. Buyers have the option to split money spent on the bundle between THQ, Child's Play Charity and the Humble Bundle organization. Those who haven't snagged the bundle yet have nine days to do so.
