March 27, 2014


Trades from $3
Investors certainly have to be happy with Westmoreland Coal Company (WLB - Snapshot Report) and its short term performance. After all, the stock has jumped by 35.9% in the past 4 weeks, and it is also above its 20 Day Simple Moving Average as well. This is certainly a good trend, but investors are probably asking themselves, can this positive trend continue for WLB?

While we can never know for sure, it is pretty encouraging that estimates for WLB have moved higher in the past few weeks, meaning that analyst sentiment is moving in the right way. Plus, the stock actually has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), so the recent move higher for this spotlighted company may definitely continue over the next few weeks.
