11:54 EDTHPQHP technical comments before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have outperformed the broader averages, rising by more than 8%. The trend has had a decidedly bullish slant, with $36 at the high and $33 at the low. These bounds give us some guidance as to how price might behave depending on earnings and guidance. A breakout above $36 and notably the 52-week high at $36.21, would appear very probable if the news is better than already high expectations. Next major resistance would be at $38, a level not seen since early 2011. An extreme upside reaction could push the stock to $40.34. Given the strong bullish sentiment in the name, the risk may be more to the downside on a disappointment. The key level to watch on the downside if news or guidance is worse than expected is at the 50-day moving average, last at $34.57. A breakdown below the 50-day would break the intermediate-term uptrend and that would have bearish implications for future price. The $33 level would become the next important zone following such a break. A snap below $33 on an extreme disappointment would see $31.48 as next support.
