Alexion Pharmaceuticals Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Fri 21'st Apr 2017

Sell candidate since 2017-04-20 Loss -1.60%

Alexion Pharmaceuticals fell by -1.60% in the last day, from USD 118.72 to USD 116.82 , and has now fallen 3 days in a row. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a 1.15% gain for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day by 0.63 million shares, but on falling prices. This is may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly for the next couple of days. In total, 2.04 million shares bought and sold for approximately USD 238 million.


Alexion Pharmaceuticals lies in the middle of a wide and strong 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 -11.3% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 100.57 and USD 112.00 at the end of this period.


There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Alexion Pharmaceuticals holds sales signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general sales 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 USD 118.00 and USD 121.05. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday April 19, 2017, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Our recommended stoploss: We hold a sell evaluation for this stock. No stop-loss set.


Alexion Pharmaceuticals holds several negative signals and is within a wide and strong 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. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Sell Candidate.
