Murphy USA (MUSA) Worth a Look: Stock Move 5.5% Higher

Murphy USA Inc.MUSA was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 5% on the day. The move came after the company reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter 2016 results. This led to 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 $61.03 to $63.97 in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this stock were revised in the last 30 days, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower suggesting trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's move higher can last.

Murphy carries a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell).
