Read MoreHide Full Article

Euronav NV (EURN - Free Report) shares soared 11.7% in the last trading session to close at $19.91. The move was backed by solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This compares to the stock's 5.8% loss over the past four weeks.

The uptick may have been owing to the price cap imposed on Russian oil by G7  countries as they attempt to limit Russia's revenues from oil. This may limit Russia's ability to fund its invasion of Ukraine. The recent Keystone pipeline oil spill may also have contributed to the upside.

This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.84 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +321.1%. Revenues are expected to be $349.99 million, up 310.1% 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 Euronav NV, 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 EURN going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
