Green Dot Corporation GDOT was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise 10% on the day. The upside was driven by the company's improved results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2016. Also, this led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend for the company as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $26.75 to $30.16 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen four positive and no negative estimate revisions in the past 30 days. Also, its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved higher over the same timeframe. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future

Green Dot currently sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Will You Make a Fortune on the Shift to Electric Cars?

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
