California Resources was top loser

In the week starting March 5, 2018, California Resources (CRC) fell from $14.98 to $14.65, a decrease of ~6.1%. This week’s decline in CRC can be attributed to the downtrend that started after CRC reported its 4Q17 earnings on February 26, 2018.

In 4Q17, California Resources reported revenues of ~$455 million, significantly lower than the Wall Street analyst consensus of ~$535 million. However, CRC beat the EPS estimates by $0.24 in 4Q17. CRC reported adjusted loss of $0.33 per share, whereas the Wall Street analyst consensus was for the loss of $0.57 per share.
