15:31 EDTDECKDeckers Outdoor technical comments ahead of results
The shares have moderately outperformed the broader averages in the last three months an are trading relatively close to the 52-week high at $90.09. On a positive surprise on earnings or guidance, that level could be easily tested. Resistance above the 52-week high is at $91.83, and $96.11. If the news disappoints, the uptrend in place off the lows of October 2012 could be violated. A breakdown below the 200-week moving average at $78.37 would snap the trend. Support below that moving average is at $74.35. It should be noted that the short-base in this name is very large. Over 18% of the float is short according to the last available report. On a positive surprise the shares could be fueled higher by a strong short-squeeze.
