Stein Mart Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Wed 26'th Jul 2017

Hold candidate since 2017-07-25 Gain 1.50%

Stein Mart gained 1.50% in the last trading day, rising from $1.33 to $1.35 , and has now gained 4 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 15.38% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day by -753 082 shares, and in total, 566 639 shares bought and sold for approximately $764 963. 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

Stein Mart lies in the middle of a very 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 -35.72% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $0.30 and $1.02 at the end of this period.

Signals

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday July 18, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Stein Mart holds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $1.49. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $1.26. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal. Volume fell during the last trading day while the price increased. This causes a divergence and may be considered as an early warning, but it may also not.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

RSI14 is 41 and the stock is currently not being overbought or oversold

Support & Resistance

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $1.26 and $1.13. On the upside the stock meets some resistance from accumulated volume at $1.53, $1.54 and $1.55.

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, Stein Mart finds support just below today's level at $1.26. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $1.13 and $1.11.

Support: $1.26 Price: $1.35 Resistance: $1.53
S: $1.26 Price: $1.35 R: $1.53

Risk

This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with periodic low trading volume this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.06 between high and low, or 4.62%. For the last week the stock has had a daily average volatility of 7.78%.

Our recommended stoploss: $1.28 (-5.42%) (This stock has very high daily movements and this gives very high risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 6 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High

Overall risk:

           

Evaluation

Stein Mart 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.
