Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc. Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Fri 23'rd Jun 2017
Buy candidate since 2017-06-23
Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc. lies the upper part of a very wide and strong falling trend in the short term, and this will 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 USD 7.55 will firstly indicate a slower falling rate, but may be the first sign of a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -28.5% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 3.43 and USD 5.40 at the end of this period.
Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc. 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 7.17 and USD 6.93. 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 Thursday June 22, 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.

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, Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc. finds support just below today's level at 6.97. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at 6.81 and 6.69.
This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved USD 0.30 between high and low, or 4.11%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 5.89%.
Our recommended stoploss: USD 7.17 (-4.59%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)
Several short-term signals are positive, despite the stock being in a strong falling trend, 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.
