U.S. Concrete, Inc. (USCR) in Focus: Stock Jumps 5.4% - Tale of the Tape

U.S. Concrete, Inc. ( USCR ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 5% on the day after the company posted fourth-quarter 2014 profit over a loss in the year-ago quarter. This led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session resulting in solid volume. This also continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up 21.50% in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this specialized health services stock were revised over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

U.S. Concrete currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

A better-ranked stock in the same industry is Vulcan Materials Company ( VMC ), sporting a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
