Sanchez Energy Corporation ( SN ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell nearly 9% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for SN, as the stock is now down over 32% in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn't be too much of a surprise to investors, as the independent exploration and production company has seen 1 negative revision 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.

SN currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include Abraxas Petroleum Corp. ( AXAS ), Cobalt International Energy, Inc. ( CIE ) and Athlon Energy Inc. ( ATHL ). Abraxas Petroleum and Cobalt International sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), while Abraxas Petroleum holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
