Ring Energy (REI) in Focus: Stock Slumps 10.3%

Zacks Equity Research

Ring Energy, Inc. (REI) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 10% on the day. The move came on pretty good 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 below the volatile price range of $18.22 to $20.35 in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors. Though it has seen no negative revisions in the past few weeks, its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

REI currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Investors interested in the oil exploration and production industry may consider better-ranked stocks like Encana Corporation (ECA), Ultra Petroleum Corp. (UPL) and Midstates Petroleum Company, Inc. (MPO). All these stocks carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
