Newmark Group NMRK shares rallied 11.5% in the last trading session to close at $12.05. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 3.8% gain over the past four weeks.
This increased optimism can be attributed to the company’s better-than-anticipated first-quarter 2021 results, aided by growth in management services, servicing fees, better leasing performance and cost-saving efforts. The market is also upbeat about the company as it raised the financial outlook for 2021, highlighting an improving operating performance.
Price and Consensus
This provider of commercial real estate services is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.12 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +33.3%. Revenues are expected to be $372.13 million, down 23.1% from the year-ago quarter.
While earnings and revenue growth expectations are important in evaluating the potential strength in a stock, empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.
For Newmark Group, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions. So, make sure to keep an eye on NMRK going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
