By
A A A

Aegion Corporation ( AEGN ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by over 8% 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 $19.58 to $21.52 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen no negative estimate revision in the past 30 days, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting 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.

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

Some better-ranked building and construction stocks worth considering include CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. ( CSTE ) and USG Corporation ( USG ). While CaesarStone boasts a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), USG has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Another stock in the broader building product industry is Lennox International, Inc. ( LII ) with the same Zacks Rank as USG.
