Kadant Inc Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Fri 23'rd Feb 2018
|Shorts||1.64% ( 2018-01-31 )|
Kadant Inc lies in the middle of a wide and 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 -5.26% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $86.81 and $95.66 at the end of this period.
There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday February 21, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Kadant Inc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $97.65 and $97.71. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. 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.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $99.05 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.

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.
