Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) in Focus: Stock Tumbles 9.2%


Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation (BAH) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell over 9% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for BAH, as the stock is now down over 1% in the past one-month time frame.

The provider of management and technology consulting services has seen a mixed track record, as current year estimates witnessed no revision over the past few weeks, and the consensus for earnings hasn’t been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.

BAH currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include Providence Service Corp. (PRSC), MAXIMUS, Inc. (MMS) and Sotheby's (BID). While Providence Service holds a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), MAXIMUS and Sotheby's carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
