Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) Shows Strength: Stock Up 10.4%

Cloud Peak Energy Inc.CLD was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares above 10% on the day. The upside was driven by the company's improved fourth-quarter fiscal 2016 results. 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 $5.18 to $5.91 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen one negative estimate revision in the past 30 days. Also, its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent move higher can last.

Cloud Peak Energy currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).
