Northern Oil and Gas (NOG) in Focus: Stock Moves 6.8% Higher

Zacks Equity Research

Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. NOG was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 7% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, which remained volatile and traded within the range of $2.10 –$2.56 in the past one-month time frame, witnessed a sharp increase yesterday.

The upmove came after the company reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter 2018 results.

The company has seen a mixed track record when it comes to estimate revisions of no increase and one decrease over the past few weeks, while 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.
