By
A A A

TravelCenters of America LLC ( TA ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell more than 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good 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 below the volatile price range of $8.58 to $9.33 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks. The consensus for earnings hasn't been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.
