This continues the recent uptrend for the company, as the stock is now up more than 30% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen one negative estimate revision in the past days and its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent move higher can last.
