STX: A beautiful breakout to be bought
STX broke out in July 2016 and again yesterday on the back of stronger than expected . The on breakout day (7.8x average daily ) makes it a very significant move - One of the main invitations to buy the shares even after they have propelled upwards. Yesterday's could be construed as a reversal, but it is no real concern as this formation is not statistically a very reliable indicator. However, it could spell that some consolidation could be expected in the short term, and after yesterday's big move.
MEDIUM AND LONG TERM COMPELLING AS WELL
On the long term-chart below, please note that yesterday's close also marks the completion of a very visible reverse . This could be an additional positive indicator.
LEVELS AND RISK REWARD?
We would like to buy the shares today after the breakout IN HALF POSITION. This will give us the fire power to double down on an eventual consolidation. We would be happy to keep owning the shares, as long as the breakout is valid, above 38 (most recent breakout level). Our target price is derived from both the pattern and the main channel from which the stock broke out in July - Both incidentally lead us to the same target at $54.30/Share, making this number both compelling and credible. This is equivalent to a positive R/R of 2.5x.
