SINGAPORE (Sept 27): Creative Technology was third on the Top 20 Gainers list this morning, rising 23 cents or 3.7% to $6.45 with 1 million shares traded.

In a filing last night, Creative boasted it sold 600 units of its newly-launched Super X-Fi amp headphone amplifier in the first 20 minutes after its online store went live at 6.34pm on Monday.
