Alphatec Holdings (ATEC) Jumps: Stock Up 8.9%

Zacks Equity Research

Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (ATEC) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose nearly 9% on the day. The rise came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend for the healthcare company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $2.10 to $2.36 in the past one-month timeframe.

In the last 30-day frame, the company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Alphatec currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Other better-ranked stocks in the medical sector include Align Technology Inc. (ALGN), Becton, Dickinson and Company (BDX) and Cardinal Health, Inc. (CAH). All three carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
