Marlin Business Services Corp. ( MRLN ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 5% 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 volatile price range of $17.67 to $18.79 over the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for Marlin Businesswere revised over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Marlin Business carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), while its  Earnings ESP  is 0.00%.

However, some better-ranked stocks in the financial sector include Saratoga Investment Corp. ( SAR ), Ares Capital Corporation ( ARCC ) and Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp. ( FSFR ). While Saratoga Investment sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Ares Capital and Fifth Street Senior Floating hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
