14:52 EDTAEOAmerican Eagle technical comments before results
The shares in the past three months have been trading sideways in a range of $12.50 at the low to $15 at the high. Those two bounds may be useful as a guide to post-earnings price reactions. On stronger than expected bullish news the stock could easily test the upper bound at $15. A breakout above $15 would resolve the range bullishly. Next resistance levels in that case would be at $15.69, $16.50 which is the 52-week high, and $17.15. If the news is bearish, a test to the low of the range would be possible. On a breakdown below $12.50, the following support levels could become additional downside objectives: $11.63, $11.10, and $10.52. The 52-week low is at $10.12 and could be tested on exceptionally bearish news.
