The All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) is in the green today, gaining 0.49% to trade at 7,455.9 points, helped along by these stocks.

They're each gaining more than 7% on the back of strong first-half earnings. Let's take a look at what's got the market bidding them sky-high today.

2 ASX All Ords stocks outperforming on earnings releases

Stock in All Ords neuroscience technology company CogState Limited (ASX: CGS) is roaring 12% higher this afternoon to trade at $1.58 following the release of the company's first-half earnings.

The company's latest results were impacted by revenue delays. It posted US$19.5 million of revenue – down 15.6% on that of the prior comparable period (pcp).

That's expected to improve in the second half. Though, its full-year revenue is still forecast to come in 6% to 9% lower than that of financial year 2022 amid slower-than-expected trial enrolments.

Beyond its earnings, CogState also announced a $13 million on-market share buyback to be conducted within the next 12 months.

It's also worth mentioning the CogState share price's recent tumbles. It's dropped 49% over the three sessions prior to today's after a guidance update was released on Thursday.

Joining the All Ords stock in the green is peer MoneyMe Ltd (ASX: MME). Shares in the digital consumer credit business are soaring 7.5% at the time of writing, trading at 21.5 cents.

The financials company posted a 147% jump in net profit after tax (NPAT) for the first half – reaching $9 million. That's the first time it's posted a profit since financial year 2020.

It responded to rising rates, recessionary concerns, and tightening capital markets last half. To do so, it moderated growth, lowered operating costs, managed credit risk, raised capital, and reset its corporate debt funding arrangements.

Meanwhile, its gross revenue lifted 152% to $121 million. It expects that to come in above $220 million for the entirety of financial year 2023.
