GNC Holdings Inc. ( GNC ) 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 continues the recent downtrend for GNC, as the stock is now down around 8% in the past one-month time frame.

The specialty retailer of health and wellness products has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks. However, the current year earnings consensus has moved higher over the past few weeks. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.

GNC currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Some better-ranked stocks in the Retail-Wholesale sector include Aaron's, Inc. ( AAN ), Citi Trends, Inc. ( CTRN ) and Herbalife Ltd. ( HLF ). All these stocks carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
