15:03 EDTUPSUPS technical commentary ahead of earnings
The key feature dominating the long-term chart, best seen in a 5-year view, is a potential head and shoulders top. On bearish news, the neckline of the pattern at $94 could be breached which would make the pattern active. Downside potential for the pattern would be to the $75 to $74 area. Patterns are most likely to fail during earnings given the potential for new information to run counter to expectations. If the news is a bullish surprise, upside potential would be to the $103 area, just above the right shoulder of the pattern. A move to $103 or higher would void the pattern. Next resistance levels to watch would be at $109.40 and the life high and 52-week high at $114.40.
