Bon-Ton Stores Inc. ( BONT ) was a big mover last session as the company saw its shares rise over 14% on the day. The move came on solid 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 above the volatile price range of $11.10 to $13.66 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen no estimate revision in the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged over the same time frame. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
