14:58 EDTCREECree technical comments ahead of earnings
There has been a pause in the dominant downtrend that began in the fall of 2013 in recent weeks that has seen basing at the $30 area. That level is the key area to watch on the downside should news be more negative than traders appear to expect. A breakdown below the $30 level could lead to a test of the 52-week low at $27.25 that was hit during the October market lows last year. If there is a positive surprise, the stock has a great deal of work ahead to turn the trend even toward neutral on a longer-term basis. Resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $35.46 and $37.26 which is the high of the range prior to the bearish gap down from early October. It would take a move above the $40 area for the stock to be back on a more bullish price path. The shares have a history of volatile reactions around earnings events with price gaps which could exceed levels noted.
