Vertex Energy (VTNR) in Focus: Stock Tumbles 14.2% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

Vertex Energy, Inc. ( VTNR ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell by over 14% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for VTNR, as the stock is up over 6% in the past one-month time frame.

The environmental services company has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks, and 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.  

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

Some better-ranked stocks in the Pollution control sector include Fuel-Tech, Inc. ( FTEK ), Landauer Inc. ( LDR ) and Pure Cycle Corporation ( PCYO ). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
