Read MoreHide Full Article

Post Holdings, Inc. (POST - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 8% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. The stock picked up sharply from the near-flat trend of $85.17 to $88.94 in the past one month time frame.

The move came after the company reported solid third-quarter fiscal 2018 results. However, adjusted earnings missed expectations. 

The company has seen three negative estimate revisions in the past few months, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved lower over the past few months, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward, to see if this recent move higher can last.

Post Holdings currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

A better-ranked stock in the Food - Miscellaneous industry is Pinnacle Foods Inc. , which currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
