Northwest Pipe Co.NWPX saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell over 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for NWPX, as the stock is now down over 17% since Nov 25.
This manufacturer of welded steel pipe has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks and the consensus for earnings hasn't been in a trend either.
