15:48 EDTKMBKimberly Clark technical comments before earnings
The shares have been in a strong uptrend since the market lows of October 2014, gaining nearly 20% in that time. On the chart there is no indication of bearish concerns, with the stock having hit a new lifetime high today at $119. Without established resistance overhead, next objectives on positive news would be at common option strike prices such as $120 and $125. If there is risk to the shares it may be in the form of adverse currency moves, given the recent strength of the dollar. The stock has been bid-up given its relatively high yield as bond yields have dropped, but it is trading at a premium historically. If there is a disappointment, support levels to watch as potential downside objectives may be at $117.19, $115, and $111.86.
