Centene (CNC) Soars: Stock Adds 12.2% in Session - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

Centene Corp. ( CNC ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 12% 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 $55.66 to $63.80 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen a mixed track record with two negative estimate revisions over the past 30 days, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged. Yesterday's jump is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Centene currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

However, some better-ranked stocks in the medical sector include Align Technology Inc. ( ALGN ), Amgen Inc. ( AMGN ) and Aastrom Biosciences, Inc. ( ASTM ). All of these sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
