STZ forms a bear pennant after a slew of bad news!

NYSE:STZ   CONSTELLATION BRANDS INC
Constellation Brands has enjoyed a massive run-up in the past 6 years and has come sharply off of its highs (around $230) in the past 5 months. STZ is a juggernaut in the alcohol industry and has deserved its high stock price given a very strong earnings growth trajectory. Lately, however, money has come out of the traditional vice stocks (alcohol and cigarettes) and poured into cannabis-related equities. STZ has noted that their growth is slowing (once in the more recent quarterly and again in a conference on February 20th). In an acknowledgement of slowing growth, STZ has taken a stake in pot stocks to diversify their business. While potentially a solid long term investment, STZ is currently showing a lot of vulnerability in the short term.

Technically, STZ was knocked down on those statements on February 20th and has since started to form a bearish pennant as seen in the charts above. I'd like to be a short seller of STZ on a breakdown from this pennant with an ultimate target of the $150 low that we saw on their last earnings report.

Comment: Updated chart:
Comment: Pretty harsh selling today in a flat tape with no news. This has morphed into a bearish wedge and seems to be playing out nicely at the moment.
Order cancelled: Made money and lost it back on this trade. Pretty much a wash here. Unlikely this pattern plays out now. Trade canceled.
