GST BXE

Trades from $3

Gastar Exploration Inc. (GST - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 9% on the day. The move came on solid 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 above the volatile price range of $0.81−$1.04 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen no estimate revisions over the past 7 days, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Gastar Exploration currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is positive.
 

A better-ranked stock in the same industry is Bellatrix Exploration Ltd. (BXE - Free Report) , which carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
