Zacks Equity Research

WPX Energy, Inc. WPX was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 9% on the day. The move came on solid 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 above the volatile price range of $9.53 to $11.16 in the past one-month time frame.
