(Updated on Nov 26, 2021)

Hold candidate since 2021-11-26

The First Bancorp stock price fell by -4.57% on the last day (Friday, 26th Nov 2021) from $48.11 to $45.91. and has now fallen 3 days in a row. During the day the stock fluctuated 3.86% from a day low at $44.72 to a day high of $46.45. The price has fallen in 8 of the last 10 days and is down by -9.07% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day by 51 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, 132 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $6.04 million.

Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 26.5% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $58.08 and $66.07 at the end of this 3-month period.

Signals & Forecast

There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The First Bancorp 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 $48.05 and $48.48. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday, November 11, 2021, and so far it has fallen -9.07%. 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

First Bancorp finds support from accumulated volume at $45.88 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

In general the stock tends to have very controlled movements and with good liquidity the risk is considered very low in this stock. During the last day, the stock moved $1.73 between high and low, or 3.86%. For the last week the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.49%.

Our recommended stop-loss: $43.51 (-5.23%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a sell signal from a pivot top found 10 days ago.)
