Materion Corp. ( MTRN ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 11% 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 uptrend for the company as the stock is now up over 30% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen one negative revision in the past 30 days while 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 jump lasts.
