Healthways (HWAY) Jumps: Stock Moves 13.0% Higher - Tale of the Tape

Healthways Inc. ( HWAY ) was a big mover last session with its shares rising almost 13% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company as the stock is now trading above the past one month's volatile price range of $15.82 to $17.80.

This provider of specialized health solutions has seen no estimate revision in the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in trend either. Yesterday's rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Healthways currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
