Collins Foods (CKF) – Approaching resistance
CKF has been trading in a secondary up trend since the 18th of March 2020 which is still technically intact. Last week’s price action gapped up strongly and rebounded close to a band of resistance between $9.95 and $10.80, where initial selling pressure is likely to arise.
The daily and weekly momentum indicators have approached overbought territory suggesting that the price is likely to pull back in the short term.
Given the proximity to a band of resistance and to overbought momentum levels, we are of the view that the short term upside from here is likely to be limited.
Cochlear (COH) – Improvement in momentum
The decline from the February 2020 high has lost momentum over the past three months and the price has been trading sideways, fluctuating between $154.60 and $207.76.
Friday’s price action broke above minor resistance of $198.70 and the RSI indicator broke for the first time since March above 60%, both showing that momentum is improving. A subsequent break above resistance of $207.76 is highly likely and could trigger a rally to $220.00 in the short term.
Over the medium term, higher price levels are achievable.
CSL Ltd (CSL) – Ready for a breakout
In our last update on the 25th of May 2020 we discussed the likelihood of the price declining in the short term and recommended clients buy the stock in the range between $270.00 - $275.00. The price declined to $275.50 on the 9th of June 2020 and provided a good opportunity to accumulate the stock.
The short term down trend line from the April high has been broken recently, showing that the correction is losing momentum. A higher low has formed on the daily chart and shows that buying interest is building up.
A break above minor resistance of $297.64 is likely and will confirm that a small bottom is in place. The first potential upside price target based on the anticipated breakout is $319.00.
Sonic Healthcare (SHL) – Approaching resistance
After bottoming at $1.45 on the 24th of March 2020 the price rallied strongly and is fast approaching a band of resistance between $3.56 and $3.69.
The daily MACD and RSI indicators have reached overbought territory suggesting that the price is vulnerable to a pull back in the short term.
The weekly RSI indicator is approaching overbought levels too, suggesting that the overhead band of resistance is likely to exert selling pressure.
Given the proximity to key resistance and the overbought daily weekly momentum conditions, we are of the view that the near term upside from here is likely to be limited.
