Quicksilver Resources (KWK) Catches Eye: Stock Jumps 11.1% - Tale of the Tape

Quicksilver Resources Inc. ( KWK ) 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 breaks the recent trend of the company as the stock is now trading above the past one month's volatile price range of $2.61 to $3.07. 

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

Quicksilver Resources currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Some better-ranked stocks in the same industry are Harvest Natural Resources Inc. ( HNR ), Clayton Williams Energy, Inc. ( CWEI ) and Devon Energy Corporation ( DVN ). While Harvest Natural and Clayton Williams Energy sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Devon Energy carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
