Tale of the Tape

Vocus Inc. saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell over 6% 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 $11.23 to $12.88 in the past one-month time frame.

This company in the Internet software and services industry has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate with no revision on either side over the past few weeks .The consensus for earnings hasn’t been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.
