Roper Industries Inc. ( ROP ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 6% 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 $129.30 to $136.87 in the past one-month time frame.
The company has seen no estimate revision over the past 30 days and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has not been in a trend either. Yesterday's jump is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
Roper Industries currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) while its Earnings ESP is negative.
Other stocks that warrant a look in the computer and technology sector include Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. ( AEIS ), Alliance Fiber Optic Products Inc. ( AFOP ) and Bitauto Holdings Limited ( BITA ). All of these sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
