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.
