Weakness Seen in Atlas Resource Partners (ARP): Stock Falls 5.0%

Zacks Equity Research

Atlas Resource Partners, L.P. (ARP) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 5% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for ARP, as the stock is now down nearly 9% in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the oil and gas company’s current year consensus for loss has widened 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.

Atlas Resource currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is -14.3%.
