Weakness Seen in Imperva (IMPV): Stock Tumbles 6.4%


Imperva Inc. (IMPV) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 6% 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 most recent downtrend for IMPV, as the stock is now down over 18% since March 6.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as this data center security solutions provider has seen 3 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year loss consensus estimate has widened over the last 60 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

IMPV currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP  is negative.

Some better-ranked stocks in the Comp-Software sector include Dealertrack Technologies, Inc. (TRAK), Pegasystems Inc. (PEGA) and Solera Holdings Inc. (SLH). All these stocks carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
