11:51 EDTCSCOCisco technical comments before earnings
The stock has underperformed the broader averages in the past three months, falling over 1%. That lower performance would have been far worse if not for the recent uptrend off the mid-October lows. That rally helped to overcome the otherwise bearish head and shoulders that had developed on the daily chart and had completed at mid-October. In a long view, the current price action appears to put the shares either at a double top, or poised for a breakout that would results in four-year highs or more. The key level is at $26, not far from where the stock is currently trading. On better news or guidance, a move above $26 would seem highly probable and that would constitute a technical bullish breakout. Next resistance would be at $27.74 and then at $28.40. If the news is not as bullish as current price action suggests, the recent uptrend would probably be broken. It would only take a move below $24.50 for that to happen. Additional downside objectives might be at the following supports at $23.76, $22.43 and $21.94. A move down to or below $22 would confirm a major top was in place, which would have long-term bearish implications for price.
