China Lodging Group (HTHT) Catches Eye: Stock Gains 6.2%


China Lodging Group, Limited HTHT was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise a little above 6% on the day. The upside was driven by improved preliminary results for the hotel operation in the first-quarter 2017. Also, this led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend for the company as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $58.24 to $64.04 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen no positive or negative estimate revision in the past 30 days. Also, its Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged over the same timeframe. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

China Lodging currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
