14:28 EDTBBYBest Buy technical comments before results
The stock has had a strong advance over the prior year, but that has stalled somewhat heading into earnings in the last few months. The shares have been in a trading range largely bound by $35 at the low, and $40 at the high. Those two levels can help up project where price may go following results. A breakout above the $40 area, at the 52-week high, would be bullish. Based on the size of the trading range, we could expect a move to the $45 area would then be in the cards, or possibly better depending on the degree of positive surprise. If the news is bearish and price breaks down below $35, the following support levels could become downside objectives: $33.17, $31.30.
