Zacks Equity Research
Simon Property's (SPG) Q1 performance reflects increased occupancy and leasing spread per square foot at the company's U.S. malls and Premium Outlets.

Hibbett Sports, Inc. HIBB is looking like an interesting pick from a technical perspective, as the company is seeing favorable trends on the moving average crossover front. Recently, the 50 Day Moving Average for HIBB broke out above the 200 Day Simple Moving Average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.

This has already started to take place, as the stock has moved higher by 12.5% in the past four weeks. Plus, the company currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) suggesting that now could definitely be the time for this breakout candidate.

More bullishness may especially be the case when investors consider what has been happening for HIBB on the earnings estimate revision front lately. No estimates have gone lower in the past two months, compared to 5 higher, while the consensus estimate has also moved higher too.
