Ferrellgas Partners LP (FGP) in Focus: Stock Gains 8.3%

Highs and Lows Stock Data

Ferrellgas Partners LPFGP was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 8% on the day. The move came on solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend of the company as the stock is now down 17.6% in the past one-month time frame.

This oil refining and marketing industry stock witnessed two negative estimate revisions over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved down over the same time frame, signaling trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's move higher lasts.

Ferrellgas Partners carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

However, a better-ranked stock in the same space is Alon USA Partners, LP ALDW , sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
