Saratoga Investment (SAR) Jumps: Stock Adds 5.6% in Session

Saratoga Investment Corp.SAR was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 5% on the day. The move came on solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now down nearly 1% in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this stock were revised in the last 30 days and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged. Yesterday's action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Currently, Saratoga Investment flaunts a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
