Body Central Corp. ( BODY ) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose 8.5% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company as the stock is down around 32% since Oct 31.

In the last 30 days, Body Central witnessed 5 downward estimate revisions and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved lower, signaling trouble down the road. So make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future to see if yesterday's move higher lasts.
