Tale of the Tape

Proofpoint, Inc. (PFPT - Snapshot Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 5% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up about 22% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen no estimate revision over the past 30 days and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has not been in a trend either. Friday’s price jump is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Proofpoint currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
