By
A A A

Given Imaging Ltd. ( GIVN ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by nearly 7% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent trend for the company as the stock experienced a peak and a subsequent fall over the last month, but gained nearly 11%.

This medical appliances and equipment firm has seen one negative revision in the last one month and its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's move higher can last.

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

Favorably ranked medical instruments stocks include Echo Therapeutics, Inc. ( ECTE ), Globus Medical, Inc. ( GMED ) and Natus Medical Inc. ( BABY ). While Echo Therapeutics and Globus Medical hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), Natus Medical carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
