Watchlist Candidate Floor & Decor (FND) Looks Ready

Floor & Decor (FND) is quietly pushing higher this week, with a potential run for the gap at 46.00 (+/-). This would represent a 15% gain from current levels. Implied volatility is pretty low, so we’d be interested in trading common.

FND Follow through daily


We anticipate price action could pick up this week as more stocks break out this week. Long above Monday’s close, with a stop at 38.00 (+/-) initially as the stock moves higher today.

Floor & Decor (FND) management controls 8% of outstanding shares.

Baird initiated an outperform rating on the stock on March 5. Morgan Stanley, Bank of American and UBS cover the company as well, with positive comments earlier in the quarter. All 4 are bullish.
