14:38 EDTFDXFedEx technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares have been trading in a range largely bound by $170 at the low and $180 at the high since December of last year. So well-defined is the range that the 50-day moving average has gone flat, neatly bisecting the range at $174.63. These bounds may help us better understand where the shares may move following results. A breakout above $180 on strong news or outlook would resolve this range bullishly. The life high at $183.51 would very likely be tested, opening up a run to the $185 to $190 area. When ranges resolve, they tend to exhibit strong price reactions which could easily exceed the reaction expected by straddle pricing. On neutral news, the stock may fall near the 50-day moving average. If the news is a bearish surprise, we could expect the low of the range to be tested at the $170 area. It would take a break below that range low to turn the trend to bearish. Next support in that event would be at $167.62.
