A. M. Castle Slumps: CAS Falls 16% in Session - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

A. M. Castle & Co. ( CAS ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell nearly 16% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for CAS, as the stock is now down over 17% in the past one-month time frame.

The company which operates as a distributor of specialty metals and plastics has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks, and the consensus for earnings hasn't been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.

CAS currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell).

Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include NN Inc. ( NNBR ), NSK Ltd. ( NPSKY ) and Norsk Hydro ASA ( NHYDY ). While NN Inc. and NSK Ltd. carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Norsk Hydro holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
