Kosmos Energy (KOS) in Focus: Stock Moves 8.1% Higher

Zacks Equity Research

Kosmos Energy Ltd. ( KOS) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise by over 8% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $10.16 to $10.76 in the past one-month time frame.

This independent oil & gas company has seen one positive revision and two negative revisions over the last 30 days and its Zacks Consensus Estimate 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 yesterday’s move higher can last.
