Central Petroleum (CTP) – long term buy
The decline from the March 2017 high has lost momentum over the past two months and the price has been trading sideways within the boundaries of a symmetrical triangle. The weekly RSI indicator has completed a bottom reversal pattern suggesting that the down trend has likely bottomed at $0.077. The higher lows on the daily chart are an encouraging sign, showing that buying support is building up.
Over the long term, the potential upside price target is $0.19.
IPH (IPH) – double blessed buy
In our last update on October 22, 2017 we discussed the overbought nature of the stock and recommended clients trim positions around $5.80. Over the past two months the stock has been trading in a correction mode and the current price action re-visited its previous resistance of $5.11 where initial buying interest is likely to arise. A bullish divergence between the price and the stochastic indicator has formed over the past month, suggesting that the price is likely to bounce soon. Given the oversold and diverging momentum conditions on the daily chart we are comfortable accumulating the stock around current price levels.
The potential upside price target is $5.85.
Highlands Pacific (HIG) – double blessed buy
HIG broke above its key resistance of $0.09 in early November 2017 and has confirmed that the stock is now trading in a primary up trend. The recent short term pull back has lost momentum over the past few weeks and the price has been consolidating within the boundaries of an imperfect bullish ascending triangle. A break above resistance of $0.099 is highly likely and will trigger a rally to $0.11 in the near term. Over the medium term, levels to $0.14 are achievable.
We are comfortable buying the stock at current price levels.
Accent Group (AX1) – tactical buy
The down trend from the July 2016 has clearly lost momentum over the past seven months and the price has been trading sideways, building a large base. The current short term down swing has found support at $0.76 and with the rising RSI and stochastic indicators we see a good probability of the price rallying in the short term.
The potential upside price target is $0.91.
The Star Entertainment Group (SGR) – target reached
In our update on 14 August, 2017 we discussed the likelihood of the price rallying in the months ahead and recommended clients buy the stock at $5.05. A strong rally over the past four months and our medium term upside price target of $6.15 has now been reached.
Although at this point there is no reversal signal evident on the chart, given the proximity to key resistance of $6.32 and the overbought and diverging momentum conditions, we recommend active clients trim positions.
