By
A A A

Forest Oil Corporation ( FST ) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose over 13% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the trend for the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $1.77 to $1.96 in the past one-month timeframe.

In the last 30 days, the company witnessed three negative positive estimate revisions and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved lower, signaling trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's move higher lasts.

Forest Oil currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

EOG Resources, Inc. ( EOG ), EQT Corporation ( EQT ) and Callon Petroleum Company ( CPE ) are a few better-ranked companies engaged in oil exploration and production. All three carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
