Marriott (MAR) Shows Strength: Stock Adds 6.4% in Session

Zacks Equity Research

Marriott International, Inc. MAR was a big mover last session, as its shares rose over 6% on the day. The move came after the company reported reported better-than-expected first-quarter 2017 results. This also led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up over 12% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen one positive and two negative estimate revisions in the last 30 days, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Marriott currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
