Jack in the Box Inc.JACK was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise almost 6% on the day. The upside came on the back of solid fiscal 2016 earnings guidance issued along with the fourth-quarter results. This led to more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company - as the stock is now up more than 6% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen 2 positive estimate revisions over the past 30 days, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Jack in the Box currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

Another well-ranked stock in the same space is BJ's Restaurants, Inc. BJRI sporting the same Zacks Rank as Jack in the Box.
