MACRO VIEW: KKR BREAKOUT (LONG ENTRY)
Price has broken out from its 1st standard deviation from quarterly (66-day mean) on 13th of July and passed an uptrend test on 20th of July 2015.
Thus on technical basis there is a clear upside risk with expanding (measured by 3.2 st deviations from quarterly mean - light blue rays on the chart) - so traders can pick up long positions at pullbacks to the 1st standard deviation from 66-day mean (now at 23.7) with stops at the 66 day mean itself (23.15)
Fundamentally speaking, the company is very strong, as it holds a diversified portfolio of business (mostly private equity) and performs top-tier management of the holdings. KKR (dubbed "Barbarians at the Gate") is known for having a great business track record for over 30 years in private equity, although their stock was offered to the general public only in 2010 - and it doubled in price since then!
