Willis Group Holdings (WSH) in Focus: Stock Falls 5.1% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A


Willis Group Holdings Public Limited Company ( WSH ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell by over 5% 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 WSH is now trading below the volatile price range of $41.8 to $44.2 in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn't be too much of a surprise to investors, as the Insurance Brokerage company has seen 3 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

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

Some better-ranked stocks in the Brokerage industry include Aon plc ( AON ), Arthur J Gallagher & Co. ( AJG ) and Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. ( MMC ). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
