Gafisa S.A. (GFA - Snapshot Report) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by nearly 7% on the day. The move came on pretty good 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 below the volatile price range of $2.69 to $3.19 in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as this residential construction company has seen 1 negative revision in the past few weeks and its current year loss estimate has widened over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

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

Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include MRV Engenharia e Participa (MRVNY), Beazer Homes USA Inc. (BZH - Snapshot Report) and DR Horton Inc. (DHI - Analyst Report). MRV Engenharia holds Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), while both Beazer Homes and DR Horton carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
