First Citizens Banc Corp. ( FCZA ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell by nearly 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for FCZA as the stock is now up over 6% from Jan 26.
The company has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks (0 increases, 0 decreases), and the consensus for earnings hasn't been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.
FCZA currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
A better-ranked stock in the same sector is Heartland Financial USA, Inc. ( HTLF ), holding a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
