Weaker technical forecast for Lincoln Educational Services Corporation as stock downgraded to Hold/Accumulate.
(Updated on Jul 19, 2024)

Buy or Hold candidate since Jun 26, 2024 Gain 17.30% PDF

The Lincoln Educational Services Corporation stock price gained 1.52% on the last trading day (Friday, 19th Jul 2024), rising from $13.16 to $13.36. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 2.85% from a day low at $13.16 to a day high of $13.53. The price has risen in 8 of the last 10 days and is up by 13.8% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -23 thousand shares and in total, 109 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $1.45 million. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.

The stock lies in the upper part of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break-up at the top trend line at $13.70 will firstly indicate a stronger rate of rising. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 10.89% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $12.07 and $15.19 at the end of this 3-month period.

LINC Signals & Forecast

The Lincoln Educational Services Corporation stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term Moving Averages giving a positive forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $12.87 and $11.55. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Friday, June 07, 2024, and so far it has risen 30.09%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Volume fell during the last trading day while the price increased. This causes a divergence and may be considered as an early warning, but it may also not.

Support, Risk & Stop-loss for Lincoln Educational Services Corporation stock

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $11.86 and $11.50. There is a natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, Lincoln Educational Services Corporation finds support just below today's level at $11.86. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $11.50 and $11.39.

This stock may move much during the day (volatility) and with periodic low trading volume this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.375 between high and low, or 2.85%. For the last week the stock has had daily average volatility of 4.07%.

The Lincoln Educational Services Corporation stock is overbought on RSI14 and the RSI has been falling for the last couple of days. This together with the fact that the stock is in the upper part of the trend poses a possible good selling opportunity for the short-term trader. However, one should note that some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.

Our recommended stop-loss: $12.96 (-2.98%) (This stock has high daily movements and this gives high risk. The RSI14 is 76 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from a pivot bottom found 48 days ago.)

Trading Expectations (LINC) For The Upcoming Trading Day Of Monday 22nd

For the upcoming trading day on Monday, 22nd we expect Lincoln Educational Services Corporation to open at $13.35, and during the day (based on 14 day Average True Range), to move between $12.93 and $13.79, which gives a possible trading interval of +/-$0.433 (+/-3.24%) up or down from last closing price. If Lincoln Educational Services Corporation takes out the full calculated possible swing range there will be an estimated 6.48% move between the lowest and the highest trading price during the day.

With no resistance above and support from accumulated volume @ $11.86, some $1.50 (11.23%) from the current price of $13.36, our system finds the risk reward attractive.

Is Lincoln Educational Services Corporation stock A Buy?

Lincoln Educational Services Corporation holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy candidate. At the current level, it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Buy to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.

Current score: 0.000 Hold/Accumulate Downgraded

Zero in score indicates that our system is expecting high volatility and risk for the following trading day. Given the latest developments, we cannot determine the next direction as it may go both ways.
