ResMed Inc (RMD) – tracking well
RMD has been trading in a primary up trend over the past year which is still firmly intact. The up trend has lost momentum over the past two months and has been trading sideways, fluctuating between $10.78 and $11.49. The momentum indicators are constructive and we favour higher prices over the medium term.
The potential upside price target is $11.70.
Flight Centre Travel (FLT) – heading higher
The up trend from February 2017 has lost momentum over the past five months and the price has been trading sideways, fluctuating between $43.07 and $49.87. Friday's price action broke (on an intra-day basis) above resistance of $49.87 showing that buying interest is building up. A decisive break on a closing basis is likely to follow and will confirm the continuation of the primary up trend.
The potential long term upside price target is $53.00.
Stockland (SGP) – accumulate around $4.10
SGP has been trading sideways over the past year, fluctuating between $4.03 and $4.98. The current short term down swing is approaching its band of support between $4.03 and $4.13, where buying interest is likely to arise. The momentum indicators have reached oversold territory suggesting that the price is likely to bounce soon. We would be looking to start accumulating the stock around $4.10.
The potential medium term upside price target is $4.60.
APN Outdoor (APO) – tactical buy
APO has been trading sideways over the past seven months, fluctuating between $4.18 and $5.05. The current short term down swing is approaching its band of support between $4.18 and $4.42 where initial buying interest is likely to arise. The RSI indicator has reached oversold territory suggesting that the price is likely to bounce soon. Given the proximity to support and the oversold momentum readings we are comfortable accumulating the stock at current price levels.
The potential upside price target is $4.95.
GrainCorp (GNC) – short term bounce
GNC has been trading in a down trend over the past seven months which is still technically intact. The current short term down swing has retraced to its previous low of $7.46 where initial buying support is likely to hold. The RSI and the stochastic indicators have turned positive from oversold territory, suggesting that the price is likely to bounce in the short term.
The first potential upside price target is $8.00 followed by $8.40.
