Blackhawk Network Holdings (HAWK) In Focus: Stock Jumps 8.2%
March 21, 2017

HAWK HLI

Trades from $3

Blackhawk Network Holdings, Inc. (HAWK - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose a little over 8% on the day. The move came after the company announced that it would add two independent directors to its board in an agreement with activist investor Jana Partners LLC. This led to 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 $35.30 to $37.90 in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this stock were revised over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also 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.

Blackhawk Network Holdings currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

A better-ranked stock in the Financial - Miscellaneous Services space is Houlihan Lokey, Inc. (HLI - Free Report) , sporting a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Will You Make a Fortune on the Shift to Electric Cars?

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
