These names are displaying both technical and quantitative deterioration.
Stocks quotes in this article: OLED, FFIV
Using recent actions and grades from TheStreet’s Quant Ratings and layering on technical analysis of the charts of those stocks, Trifecta Stocks identifies five names each week that look bearish.
While we will not be weighing in with fundamental analysis we hope this piece will give investors interested in stocks on the way down a good starting point to do further homework on the names.
This supplier of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display materials has hit some major resistance, and the chart is showing there is some downside to come. Universal Display has some bearish money flow here and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is steep and sloping downward; there is awful price action.
Even on the up days for the market this stock acts poorly. Moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is on a sell signal. It’s a volatile name, but short is the right play.
Put in a stop at $180 and ride it to the $140s.
This provider of network application services has been under pressure since reporting a subpar quarter in July. The painful move down has been on heavy turnover, with the big institutions distributing the stock.
Money flow is poor and the MACD is also on a sell signal. The cloud is also red, which means the trend is clearly down. The recent up days have been on low turnover — not good.
Short to the $100 area, but put in a stop at $130.
