13:56 EDTPAYVeriFone technical comments ahead of results
The stock has been in a downtrend since topping out near the 52-week high in November. That 52-week high, at $38.26, has been notable resistance in the prior year. If the news is weaker than expected, the downtrend could extend. Support levels that could become additional downside objectives are at $31.13, $30.19, and $28.95. A move that takes the shares below $30 would signal a potential major topping pattern that could be long-term bearish for price. If the news is better than expected, resistance levels that could become upside objectives are at $34.94, $36.53, $37.46, and the 52-week high at $38.26.
