J. C. Penney Company, Inc.JCP was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 6% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, which remained volatile and traded within the range of $2.77-$3.15 in the past one-month time frame, witnessed a sharp increase yesterday.

The company has seen a mixed track record when it comes to estimate revision of one increase and no decreases over the past few months, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter hasn't been in a trend either. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

J. C. Penney currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is positive.

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.
