Strength Seen in China Cord Blood (CO): Stock Soars 19.5%

Zacks Equity Research

China Cord Blood Corporation (CO) was a big mover last session with its shares rising nearly 20% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares of changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend of the company as the stock has gained nearly 24% in the past one-month time frame.
This provider of umbilical cord blood storage and ancillary services has seen no estimate revision in the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn’t been in trend either. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

China Cord Blood currently holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
