CRH PLC Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Tue 23'rd May 2017

Buy candidate since 2017-05-23

CRH PLC gained 0.19% in the last trading day, rising from USD 36.41 to USD 36.48 The price has risen in 5 of the last 10 days , but is still down by -1.94% for this period. Volume fell in the last day by -131 250 shares, and in total, 218 577 shares bought and sold for approximately USD 7.97 million. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.

Trend

CRH PLC lies in the middle of a weak 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 7.1% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 36.90 and USD 40.97 at the end of this period.

Signals

Only positive signals in the chart today. CRH PLC holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, 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 USD 36.46 and USD 35.84. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday May 17, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

RSI14 is 43 and the stock is currently not being overbought or oversold

Support & Resistance

CRH PLC finds support from accumulated volume at USD 35.17, USD 35.10, and USD 34.79. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at USD 37.16, USD 37.28 and USD 37.11.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at USD 37.16 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.

Risk

This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved USD 0.35 (0.97%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.36%.

Our recommended stoploss: USD 34.63 (-5.07%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 4 days ago.)

Evaluation

Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Buy Candidate.
