5 "Tells" that the Stock Markets Are About to Reverse

Three Stocks Breaking Out

Companies / Company Chart Analysis Aug 17, 2017 - 10:54 AM GMT

By: Harry_Boxer

Companies

Three stocks breaking out of consolidation patterns lead our charts to watch today, while one trending lower is highlighted as a potential short.

Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated (CORT) climbed 87 cents, or 6.2%, to close at $14.87 on 1.6 million shares traded Tuesday. The stock, which had run up sharply for a week after beating estimates and raising guidance in its August 1 earnings report, had given back part of that move in a falling wedge pattern, before popping out of that wedge on Tuesday. If price clears the lateral resistance level at $15.26, next targets for the biotech company are $16.50 and $18. Short interest of 10.6 times its average volume could fuel the move as shorts cover on a rally.


Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. (HIIQ) is also on the move. The stock rose 85 cents, or 2.5%, to $34.10 on Tuesday, after rallying by more than 5% on Monday, on no news. The stock, which rose sharply after its positive earnings announcement on August 2, flagged for about a week, but has now broken out of the flag, and is up more than 25% since its earnings report. Near-term targets are $35 and $38. In the longer term, this stock could run into the $45-$50 range.

MiMedx Group, Inc. (MDXG) reached a new all-time high of $17.24 before closing up 96 cents for the day at $16.74 on 4.4 million shares traded, nearly four times its average volume. While the company, which develops and markets regenerative biomaterial products and bioimplants, did not report news on Tuesday, price lifted out of a multi-month consolidation phase on the stock's largest trading volume this year. The near-term price target is $19 and long term targets are at $22 and $24. Unusual short interest of 23 times its average volume may fuel the move as shorts cover on a rally.

On the short side, Cummins Inc. (CMI) declined by 65 cents to close at $155.59 on 1.3 million shares traded Tuesday. The machinery stock reached an all-time high near $170 on July 31 -- the day before the company's disappointing earnings announcement on August 1 and subsequent slide down. That high appears to be a possible price reversal point, as the stock has dropped out of its rising price channel since then and has not been able to overcome the current resistance level in an attempted bounce-back. Next price targets are $150 and $144, and possibly much lower after that.
