Tale of the Tape

Delta Natural Gas Company, Inc. was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 5% 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 $19.64 to $20.88 in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this utilities-gas distribution company were revised over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged over the same time frame. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
