Read MoreHide Full Article

Gogo (GOGO - Free Report) shares ended the last trading session 8.9% higher at $13.32. The jump came on an impressive volume with a higher-than-average number of shares changing hands in the session. This compares to the stock's 28.7% loss over the past four weeks.

With the divestiture of the commercial in-flight connectivity division, the company has restructured its business model to focus more on its core operations. The transformative sale agreement has unlocked new business opportunities for Gogo within the business aviation market and has improved its liquidity position.

This in-flight internet provider is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.15 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of -6.3%. Revenues are expected to be $101.89 million, up 16.9% 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 Gogo, 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 GOGO going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
