Flowers Foods, Inc. FLO was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 5% 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 $18.49 to $19.62 in the past one-month time frame.

The move came after the company reported fourth quarter and full-year 2017 results.

The company has seen a flat track record when it comes to estimate revisions over the past few weeks, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also remained unchanged. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.
