Red day on Friday for Amedisys Inc stock after losing 1.1%
(Updated on Jan 21, 2022)


Sell candidate since 2022-01-21 PDF

The Amedisys Inc stock price fell by -1.10% on the last day (Friday, 21st Jan 2022) from $134.51 to $133.03. During the day the stock fluctuated 3.90% from a day low at $132.63 to a day high of $137.80. The price has fallen in 8 of the last 10 days and is down by -12.18% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day by 18 thousand shares but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly over the next couple of days. In total, 292 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $38.85 million.

The stock lies in the middle of a very wide and falling trend in the short term and further fall within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -16.51% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $99.68 and $134.34 at the end of this 3-month period.

Signals & Forecast

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, and so far it has risen 0.0075%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Amedisys Inc stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $139.58 and $152.91. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Support, Risk & Stop-loss

Amedisys Inc finds support from accumulated volume at $133.02 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock may move much during the day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $5.17 between high and low, or 3.90%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 5.22%.

Amedisys Inc is oversold on RSI14 (21). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.

Our recommended stop-loss: We hold an negative evaluation for this stock. No stop-loss is set.

Is Amedisys Inc stock A Buy?

Amedisys Inc holds several negative signals and is within a very wide and falling trend, so we believe it will still perform weakly in the next couple of days or weeks. We therefore hold a negative evaluation of this stock.

Current score: -3.790
