Mercer International Inc. ( MERC ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by a little over 5% on the day. The company experienced a peak and a subsequent fall over the last month, and prices picked up again by around 5% since Nov 26.

This pulp and paper business firm has seen one negative revision in the past 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 this recent move higher can last.
