Zacks

Oasis Petroleum Inc. OAS 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 $6.95 to $7.76 in the past one-month time frame.

The stock gained after the company reported that an initial public offering has been launched for its new master limited partnership, Oasis Midstream Partners LP.

The company has seen a mixed track record when it comes to estimate revisions of two increases and two decreases over the past few weeks, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarterremained unchanged.
