Investors certainly have to be happy with Westlake Chemical Corporation WLK and its short term performance. After all, the stock has jumped by 17.5% in the past 4 weeks, and it is also above its 20 Day Simple Moving Average as well. This is certainly a good trend, but investors are probably asking themselves, can this positive trend continue for WLK?

While we can never know for sure, it is pretty encouraging that estimates for WLK have moved higher in the past few weeks, meaning that analyst sentiment is moving in the right way. Plus, the stock actually has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), so the recent move higher for this spotlighted company may definitely continue over the next few weeks.You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here .
