ANN INC. (ANN) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell over 5% 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 ANN, as the stock is now down over 12% in the past one-month time frame.

The retailer of upscale women's clothing has seen a mixed track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks with 2 decreases, 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.
