Central Garden & Pet Company stock downgraded to Sell Candidate
(Updated on Dec 03, 2021)

Sell candidate since 2021-12-03

The Central Garden & Pet Company stock price gained 1.40% on the last trading day (Friday, 3rd Dec 2021), rising from $44.41 to $45.03. , and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. During the day the stock fluctuated 3.84% from a day low at $44.03 to a day high of $45.72. The price has fallen in 7 of the last 10 days and is down by -6.89% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 12 thousand more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 224 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $10.10 million.

The stock lies in the lower part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $43.12 is broken, it will firstly indicate a slower rate of rising, but may also be an early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 18.37% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $51.04 and $63.22 at the end of this 3-month period.

Signals & Forecast

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday, December 01, 2021, and so far it has risen 5.09%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Central Garden & Pet Company stock holds a buy signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, the long-term average holds a general sell signal. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sell signal in the stock giving a more negative forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $47.04. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $44.60. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sell signal and strengthen the general signal. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).

Support, Risk & Stop-loss

Central Garden & Pet Company finds support from accumulated volume at $44.41 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
