BioScrip (BIOS) in Focus: Stock Tanks 12.3%
February 28, 2014
BIOS AAP DAVE
BioScrip Inc. ( BIOS - Analyst Report) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell over 12% on the day. The move came on pretty good 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 below the volatile price range of $7.96 to $8.69 in the past one-month time frame.
This home health care services provider has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions, and the consensus for earnings hasn’t been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.
BIOS currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
Some better-ranked stocks in the broader retail sector include Advance Auto Parts Inc. ( AAP - Analyst Report) , Famous Dave's of America Inc. ( DAVE - Snapshot Report) and Stock Building Supply Holdings, Inc. . All these stocks sport a Zacks Rank #1(Strong Buy).
