Posted Fri Aug 28, 09:25 am ET

by Zacks Equity Research

AxoGen, Inc. (AXGN) was a big mover last session with its shares rising over 13% on the day. The upside was owing to the company selling 4,861,111 registered shares of its common stock to Essex Woodlands – a leading investment firm focused on growth-oriented companies in the healthcare sector. The sale was completed at a price of $3.60 per share, generating net proceeds of approximately $17.1 million for AxoGen. This development led to far more shares changing hands yesterday than in a normal session. The move breaks the recent trend of the company as the stock is now trading above the past one month’s volatile price range of $3.35 to $3.95.

This medical technology company providing surgical nerve repair solutions has witnessed 2 positive estimate revisions in the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has also moved higher over the same period. This implies solid trading potential for the company. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday’s rally can turn into more strength down the road.

Manulife Financial (MFC): Moving Average Crossover Alert

Posted Fri Aug 28, 09:12 am ET

by Zacks Equity Research

Manulife Financial Corporation (MFC) could be a stock to avoid from a technical perspective, as the firm is seeing unfavorable trends on the moving average crossover front. Recently, the 50 Day Moving Average for MFC broke out below the 200 Day Simple Moving Average, suggesting short-term bearishness.

This has already started to take place, as the stock has moved lower by 8.6% in the past four weeks. And with the recent moving average crossover, investors have to think that more unfavorable trading is ahead for MFC stock.

If that wasn’t enough, Manulife Financial isn’t looking too great from an earnings estimate revision perspective either. It appears as though many analysts have been reducing their earnings expectations for the stock lately, which is usually not a good sign of things to come.

Consider that in the last 30 days, 4 estimates have been reduced, while none has moved higher. Add this in to a similar move lower in the consensus estimate, and there is plenty of reason to be bearish here.

That is why we currently have a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) on this stock and are looking for it to underperform in the weeks ahead. So either avoid this stock or consider jumping ship until the estimates and technical factors turn around for MFC.
