Read MoreHide Full Article

Tecnoglass (TGLS - Free Report) shares soared 11.4% in the last trading session to close at $26.20. The move was backed by solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This compares to the stock's 4.2% gain over the past four weeks.

Shares of Tecnoglass have been gaining from optimism surrounding the home improvements market, characterized by growth in U.S. single-family housing activity, recovering commercial construction works as well as market share gains. Moreover, the company’s vertically integrated business model is helping to manage costs prudently. Backed by such trends and the company’s strong business fundamentals, management provided an encouraging view for 2021. It expects total revenues in the range of $450-$465 million, reflecting growth from $374.9 million reported in the prior year.

This architectural glass maker is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.34 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +21.4%. Revenues are expected to be $117.64 million, up 13.9% from the year-ago quarter.

While earnings and revenue growth expectations are important in evaluating the potential strength in a stock, empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.

For Tecnoglass, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions. So, make sure to keep an eye on TGLS going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
