Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN) in Focus: Stock Jumps 5.5%

Mead Johnson Nutrition CompanyMJN was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise above 5% on the day. The move came on the company's announcement of a $1.5 Billion Share Repurchase Plan. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $69.64 to $75.16 in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30 days, the company has seen five downward estimate revisions and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved lower, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent move higher can last.
