14:02 EDTJECJacobs Engineering technical comments before earnings
The stock has underperformed in the prior three months, trading down 10%. The trend was decidedly bearish in the front half of the period, but since the market lows of mid-October has modified to a sideways consolidation. In a longer-term view the recent price action has been part of a much larger downtrend since price peaked in late 2013. There is a potential bearish flag when viewed on a 5-year graph, with the flag being formed by the recent price consolidation. On bearish news, a breakdown below the low of the flag at $47 would trigger the pattern. Downside potential if the pattern triggers and completes is to the $35 area. If the news is better than current bearish expectations would suggest, the key for price would be breaking out of the top of the flag at $49. If that happens the pattern would be voided. Additional upside objectives would be at $50.56, $51.65, and $53.28 depending on the degree of positive surprise.
