By
A A A

GW Pharmaceuticals plc ( GWPH ) was a big mover last session with its shares rising over 6% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company as the stock is now trading above the past one month's volatile price range of $66.16 to $71.49.

This biopharmaceutical company has seen no estimate revisions in the last 7 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in trend either. Friday's rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

GW Pharmaceuticals currently holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Investors interested in the medical industry may consider other well-placed stocks like Cardica Inc. ( CRDC ), Eagle Pharmaceuticals Inc. ( EGRX ) and ICU Medical, Inc. ( ICUI ). All the three stocks carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
