Kemper Corporation Slumps: KMPR Falls 7.1% in Session

Zacks Equity Research

Kemper Corporation (KMPR) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 7% 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 KMPR, as the stock is now down 12% since Apr 23, 2014.
 
This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the financial services provider has seen 1 negative revision in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 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.
 
KMPR currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).
 
Investors interested in the same industry may consider better-ranked stocks like Horace Mann Educators Corp. (HMN), Old Republic International Corporation (ORI) and Prudential plc (PUK). All these stocks carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
