Target Hospitality (TH - Free Report) shares soared 22.2% in the last trading session to close at $6.05. The move was backed by solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This compares to the stock's 27.7% loss over the past four weeks.

Target Hospitality’s shares have appreciated after the company announced that it inked a prolonged lease and services agreement. Per the agreement, it will deliver improved infrastructure and comprehensive facility services to its major national non-profit partner and the U.S. Government in their humanitarian aid missions.

This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.03 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +400%. Revenues are expected to be $82.67 million, up 10.2% from the year-ago quarter.

Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.

For Target Hospitality, 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 TH going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
