Tale of the Tape

Allied Nevada Gold Corp. (ANV - Snapshot Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by over 7% 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 $4.95 to $5.80 in the past one-month time frame.

This gold mining company has seen one positive estimate revision and three negative estimate revisions over the last 30 days and its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting there may be 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.

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