By
A A A

Pacific Premier Bancorp Inc. ( PPBI ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by nearly 8% 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 near-flat trend for the company, as the stock is now trading above the flattish price range of $14.06 and $14.84 in the past one-month time frame.

This savings and loan holding company for Life Bank has seen no estimate revision in last one month and its Zacks Consensus Estimate 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.

Pacific Premier Bancorp currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

However, better-ranked stocks in the finance-savings and loans industry include Teche Holding Company ( TSH ), Washington Federal Inc. ( WAFD ) and West Bancorp., Inc. ( WTBA ). While Teche Holding and Washington Federal hold a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), West Bankcorp carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
