Cracker Barrel Old Country Store (CBRL) Lags Q4 Earnings and Revenue Estimates

Cracker Barrel (CBRL) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of -17.67% and -1.19%, respectively, for the quarter ended July 2018. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?

Hecla Mining Company HL was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 5% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, trading within a volatile range of $3.22-$3.73 in the past one-month time frame, showed a sharp increase yesterday.

The move came after the company has completed the buyout of Klondex Mines Ltd.

The company has seen two negative estimate revisions in the past month, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate has also 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 this recent move higher can last.

Hecla Mining currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell), while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
