15:09 EDTBIGBig Lots technical notes ahead of results
The shares hit a life high in November of last year and since that time have had a difficult time holding the $50 area. This has lead to a topping action in the chart, with price having corrected down to support at the $45 area. A breakdown below $42.50 on bearish news would threaten the long-term uptrend in price. Next supports below would be at $41.23, and $39.14. On a positive surprise, first significant resistance would be at the $47.50 area and then the life high and 52-week high at $51.75. With over 15% of the float short as of the last available report, a positive surprise is likely to see strong buy-to-cover demand in a small trading float. That could see price exceeded on the upside, opening up the potential for a run to the $52.50 to $55 area. The stock has a history of extreme price reactions and gaps in price around earnings news.
