MEDNAX, Inc . MD was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 14% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, which remained volatile and traded within the range of $41.35 -$46.32 in the past one-month time frame, witnessed a sharp increase yesterday.

The company's shares rose after Elliott Management, a big hedge fund, revealed a 7% stake in the company and said that it seeks to enhance shareholders' value.

The company has seen two positive versus three negative estimate revisions over the past one month, and the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved downward, suggesting some trouble down the road. So make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future to see if this recent move higher can last.

MEDNAX currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
