Tale of the Tape

Express Inc. (EXPR - Snapshot Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 13% 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 $13.97 to $16.02 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen three negative revisions in the past 30 days, while 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 yesterday’s jump lasts.

Express currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

However, better-ranked stocks in the retail-apparel/shoe industry include Citi Trends, Inc. (CTRN - Analyst Report), Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (ANF - Analyst Report) and Foot Locker, Inc. (FL - Snapshot Report). While Citi Trends sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Abercrombie & Fitch and  Foot Locker have a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
