Benefitfocus, Inc. ( BNFT ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell by over 9% 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 $29.76 to $43.51 in the past one-month time frame.

Benefitfocus has seen flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks (no increase, no decrease), 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 of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.

BNFT currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).

Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include Support.com, Inc. ( SPRT ), Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. ( SNCR ) and Constant Contact, Inc. ( CTCT ). While Support.com and Synchronoss Technologies carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Constant Contact holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
