SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) in Focus: Stock Up 9.4%

SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc.SEAS was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 9% on the day. The stock moved up after the company announced it would end its breeding program of orca killer whales. This led to solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, trading in a volatile price range of $17.05 to $19.83 in the past one-month time frame, showed a pick-up yesterday at $18.72.

This leisure and recreation services stock witnessed two negative estimate revisions over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved down over the same time frame, signaling trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's move higher lasts.

SeaWorld Entertainment has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

However, a better-ranked stock in the same space is Carmike Cinemas Inc. CKEC , sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
