Tale of the Tape

SWS Group, Inc. (SWS - Snapshot Report) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose over 20% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $5.80 to $6.26 in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30-day frame, the company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn’t been in a trend either. Friday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

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

Other better-ranked stocks in the financial sector include Investment Technology Group Inc. (ITG - Snapshot Report), KCG Holdings, Inc. (KCG - Snapshot Report) and The Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW - Analyst Report). While Investment Technology Group and KCG Holdings sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), The Charles Schwab Corp. holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
