16:00 EDTFDXFedEx technical comments ahead of results
Shares have outperformed in the last three months, trading up over 10%. The trading range in the same period has been contained between $146 at the low and $155 at the top, the latter being close to the life high. On stronger than expected news, the shares could easily top life highs, opening up a range of $156 to $165 depending on the degree of positive surprise. Without resistance, there may be room for an upside surprise in price. If the shares break the low at $146, the technical picture for the stock could change considerably. A break below $145 would put the current uptrend in jeopardy. Additional supports below are at $140.27 and $135.49 on an extreme move lower.
