CMG Uptrend Broken

timwest top 41 months ago
CMG has broken below a key level of technical support at 421 where it had spend more than two weeks building a base. The support level broke on heavy volume and this selling zone has been retested on a light volume advance and is close to failing as of this analysis (failure is defined if CMG breaks under a previous day's low). You can see how low CMG would have to go to see another level where it had traded for 13 days. Target 400. Stop loss: 425.

This is a technical-only analysis, but CMG's market cap is a large $13 billion and their earnings are a small $230 million (rounding off). With sales only $2.4 billion, CMG is a whopping 5.8 times trailing revenues. Would you buy the whole company with $13 billion of your cash laying around so you can "earn" less than 2% on your money in a restaurant business? Obviously they have leverage to grow the company and have done so very successfully to date.

The path veered a bit by not dropping to 400 first, but did go up to the area that I thought it needed to rally to. Also, CMG didn't hit the stop and is now nicely profitable. Hope you all are doing well too.

Tim, could you please provide your opinion/post an update on CMG at this moment? Do you agree with long term shorting opportunities published by nmike
