News Corporation (NWSA) Jumps: Stock Rises 5.2%

Zacks Equity Research

News Corporation NWSA 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. The stock picked up sharply from the near-flat trend of $13.62 to $14.36 in the past one month time frame.

The move came after the company reported stronger-than-expected first-quarter 2018 results.

Though the company has seen one negative estimate revision over the past few weeks, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter remained unchanged. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

News Corporation currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Will You Make a Fortune on the Shift to Electric Cars?

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
