Michaels (MIK) Catches Eye: Stock Jumps 8.5%

The Michaels Companies, Inc. MIK was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 9% 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 volatile price range of $5.03 to $7.15 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen three positive estimate revisions in the past few weeks, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved higher over the past few weeks, suggesting that more solid trading could be ahead for Michaels.
