STAAR Surgical Company ( STAA ) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose almost 6% 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 38% in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30-day frame, the healthcare company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in a trend either. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

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

Other better-ranked stocks in the medical sector include Cardinal Health, Inc. ( CAH ), Align Technology Inc. ( ALGN ) and McKesson Corporation ( MCK ). While Cardinal health and Align Technology sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), McKesson holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
