Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) in Focus: Stock Tumbles 9.2% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation ( BAH ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell over 9% 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 BAH, as the stock is now down over 1% in the past one-month time frame.

The provider of management and technology consulting services has seen a mixed track record, as current year estimates witnessed no revision 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.

BAH currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).


Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include Providence Service Corp. ( PRSC ), MAXIMUS, Inc. ( MMS ) and Sotheby's ( BID ). While Providence Service holds a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), MAXIMUS and Sotheby's carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
