Woodward (WWD) Worth a Look: Stock Adds 5.9% in Session - Tale of the Tape

Woodward, Inc. ( WWD ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 6% on the day. The upside was driven by better-than-expected first-quarter fiscal 2015 results reported by the company. This led to solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company as the stock is now down 10.1% in the past one-month time frame.

The stock has seen one negative estimate revision in the past 30 days and its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's move higher can last.

Woodward currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

A better-ranked stock in the instru-control industry is Nanometrics Incorporated ( NANO ), which carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
