13:03 EDTYUMYum! Brands technical notes ahead of results
The shares have markedly under-performed in the prior three months, trading down over 14%. A great deal of the share price loss came at the front of the interval during the tainted-meat scandal in China. After the initial drop, shares have been basing in a range of $70 at the low and $73 at the high. The base at $70 may be particularly important. If the news is worse than already low expectations, that support at the $70 area could be lost. Next support below would be at $68.20 and then at $66.16. An extreme price reaction could see the 52-week low at $64.08 tested as well or perhaps broken. Equally, an upside surprise could see the top of the range tested at $73. Given low expectations, a bit of stronger news could push the stock through that resistance level. Next upside would be at $73.84, $75.44, and then at $76.33 on an increasing band of positive surprises.
