Shareholders of these companies enjoyed a positive start to the week.

Kogan.com Ltd (ASX: KGN)

The Kogan.com Ltd share price was up by 6.81% on Monday as the e-commerce company's stock continues to recover.

The Kogan share price slumped from the $9.80 it was trading at in early June to a dismal $4.70 at the end of July.

But the Kogan share price has since edged back to $5.96.   

Under the constant threat of the Amazon effect lingering in investors' minds, Kogan may not be the ASX's most stable company.

However, with Kogan expected to release its half-year results on Friday, shareholders could soon be presented with a clearer picture concerning Amazon's impact on Kogan.

 Navigator Global Investments Ltd (ASX: NGI)

The Navigator share price lost more than 5% when the company released its FY18 results presentation last week.

But it seems the Navigator share price has defied the results jitters and bounced back, gaining 4.5% on Monday.

With Navigator's market value fast approaching $1 billion, shareholders have enjoyed returns exceeding 120% over the past year.

Eclipx Group Ltd (ASX: ECX)

The Eclipx Group Ltd share price took a battering earlier this month when the fleet management company slashed its profit expectations.

Eclipx shares sunk by about 40% after the company stated that it expected its FY2018 NPATA to come in at around $77 million. That would represent an increase of about 15% on the prior corresponding period's results rather than an increase of up to 30% as the company had previously indicated.

The Eclipx share price has since recovered after dropping to $1.80 last week and is now up to $2.10, having gained more than 10% on Monday.

Despite the recent gains, the Eclipx share price is still far below the $3.64 it was going for this time last year, representing a decline of more than 40% over the past 12 months.
