Oil-Dri Corporation Of America Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Wed 26'th Jul 2017
Hold candidate since 2017-07-25 Loss -0.78%
Oil-Dri Corporation Of America lies in the middle of a wide and strong 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 13.41% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $43.01 and $52.55 at the end of this period.
Oil-Dri Corporation Of America 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 $42.93 and $41.17. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday July 21, 2017, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell along with the price during the last trading day, which is technical positive. One should, however, note that this stock may have low liquidity in periods, which increases the general risk.

Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $40.62 and $39.84. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at $43.36, $43.06 and $43.58.
There is 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, Oil-Dri Corporation Of America finds support just below today's level at $40.62. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $39.84 and $35.39. The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $43.36 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.
In general the stock tends to have controlled movements, but the low liquidity has increased the risk substantially.
Our recommended stoploss: $41.04 (-4.61%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 3 days ago.)
Oil-Dri Corporation Of America holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy-recommendation. At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Buy Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
Your capital is at risk.
