Tale of the Tape

EPR Properties (EPR - Snapshot Report) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 9% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. The stock had gained 9.2% since Jun 27 till Jul 24, but suffered a sharp fall on Jul 25.
 
This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the real estate company has seen 2 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower 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.
 
EPR currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).
 
Some better-ranked stocks in the same industry include Acadia Realty Trust (AKR - Snapshot Report), General Growth Properties, Inc (GGP - Snapshot Report) and Realty Income Corporation (O - Snapshot Report). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
