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.
The stock of this producer of building materials has formed a bearish triangle on the lower end of the chart, which often ends poorly. Volume has been light as the stock rallied up over the past few weeks, though with much less conviction than you want to see.
The cloud is red and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is extended at this interim high. A break of this triangle spells trouble for Owens Corning, which could drop easily to the March lows.
Put in a stop at the top of the cloud, or the $48 level.
Another disaster in the retail group is this company behind Coach and Kate Spade. The stock fell sharply in March and tried to recover but barely recouped the losses.
Volume levels have been swelling on the down sessions, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is capped around the 50 level and the cloud is red.
We could see a test lower to the March lows, just above $10. That would be a nice 30%+ decline from current prices. Put a stop in around $17.50.
