(Updated on Nov 26, 2021)

During the day the stock fluctuated 4.61% from a day low at $63.73 to a day high of $66.67. The price has fallen in 8 of the last 10 days and is down by -8.05% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day by 20 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, 91 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $6.00 million.

The stock lies in the middle of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 18.73% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $67.18 and $91.41 at the end of this 3-month period.

Signals & Forecast

The Astec Industries stock holds a sell signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock giving a positive forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately $69.15. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $60.54. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sell signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday, November 08, 2021, and so far it has fallen -11.04%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. 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

Astec Industries finds support from accumulated volume at $64.81 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 $2.94 between high and low, or 4.61%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.35%.

Our recommended stop-loss: $63.30 (-4.47%) (This stock has high daily movements and this gives high risk. There is a sell signal from a pivot top found 13 days ago.)

Is Astec Industries stock A Buy?

Astec Industries holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.

Current score: 0.301
