Real Page Technical Analysis
Real Page has been on the watch list recently. In late August we observed its weekly chart, which provided a glimpse into the stocks potential as a swing. Note: we already have a swing position.
“Buying the pullback to the 9ema initially, then adding on breakouts gives you the best swing potential.”
Since February 2016 the stock has gained more than 156%. The trend is intact. Earnings are the first day of November.
We have been waiting for a breakout, as this descending wedge developed over the past few weeks. We will add today if the stock continues to push higher with a short-term target of 43.50 (+/-). The measured move from the current pattern is +2.00 (+/-) so an extended target above the recent pivot would be approximately 45.50. The weekly chart supports this thesis.
MACD crossed early this week and RSI is trending through 50, suggesting higher prices will result from this breakout.
Real Page 60-minute
The 60-minute chart is trending as well, finishing the day on a positive note.
We would be remiss to overlook fundamentals. One of the reasons IBD50 stocks perform so well is due to earnings and sales. Investor Business Daily does this for you every day of the week. A subscription is well worth the money.
Note the embedded fundamental data in the above charts and study the earnings. Real Page is doing something right when earnings keep growing by double digits.
Additional IBD50 Stocks on the watch list show potential patterns ready for a breakout. Be sure to review the weekly watch list prior to the opening bell.
