While we will not be weighing in with fundamental analysis we hope this piece will give investors interested in stocks on the way down a good starting point to do further homework on the names.
This provider of energy management systems was hot stuff after the crash's bottom in late March, but since then has fizzled out. While there are some decent support zones, this stock has started a slide on higher volume -- not a good sign.
Money flow is negative and the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is on a sell signal. The channel is defined and might break to the downside, thus a move to the mid-$30s is possible. There was big volume recently on that sell day, so if short put in a stop at $50 but target the low $30s.
Here's another retailer that has fallen on hard times. The company behind Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works is headed back down and may get to the March lows.
There is good support at $10, but that is a good 30% lower than current prices. MACD is on a sell signal and money flow just turned bearish; the Relative Strength Index (RSI) slope is down and steep.
If short, put in a stop at $18 but ride it down.
