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.
Hit hard due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this restaurant operator put in a nice recovery but now has hit some hard resistance. Notice the wall that is the top of the cloud, and the recent pull upward could not even bring the cloud to green.
There are some bullish signs here, but we think this name is topping out and thus would be a good short candidate. If short, put in a stop at $55 and look to ride it to the low $30s.
This biopharmaceutical giant was one of the early winners in the Covid-19 sweepstakes, but the stock has faded hard and was pushed lower after earnings hit last week. The cloud is bearish and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is steep and sloping down.
There was protection at the 200-day moving average but that was removed on Wednesday. There is a moving average convergence divergence (MACD) sell signal, and look at the distribution in the money flow.
If short, look for a move to the low $60s but put in a stop at $72.
