Eagle Materials Inc. (NYSE:EXP) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 6% 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 $95.90 to $103.81in the past one-month time frame.

The stock gained in response to a favorable analyst report from Longbow Research.

The company has seen two positive estimate revisions in the past few months, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved higher over the past few months, suggesting that more solid trading could be ahead for Eagle Materials. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.

Eagle Materials currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

A better-ranked stock in the Construction sector is HeidelbergCement (DE:HEIG) AG (OTC:HDELY) , which currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

It's hard to believe, even for us at Zacks. But while the market gained +21.9% in 2017, our top stock-picking screens have returned +115.0%, +109.3%, +104.9%, +98.6%, and +67.1%.

And this outperformance has not just been a recent phenomenon. Over the years it has been remarkably consistent. From 2000 - 2017, the composite yearly average gain for these strategies has beaten the market more than 19X over. Maybe even more remarkable is the fact that we're willing to share their latest stocks with you without cost or obligation.
