It is not often that stocks manage to gain so many days in a row, and falls for a day or two should be expected. During day the stock fluctuated 0.75% from a day low at $108.84 to a day high of $109.66. The price has risen in 8 of the last 10 days and is up by 4.4% over the past 2 weeks.

  • 52 week high for the Waste Management Inc - $109.66 and low - $79.96.

Trend

Waste Management Inc lies in the upper part of a narrow and weak rising 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 $109.69 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 8.81% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $113.86 and $119.36 at the end of this period.

Signals

Only positive signals in the chart today. Waste Management 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 $108.11 and $105.42. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday May 07, 2019, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.

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 $0.82 (0.75%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.06%.

Since the Waste Management Inc has been rising for 7 days in a row, the risk for the next couple of days has increased. We don't expect a major reaction as the stock is in very good shape technically, and therefore hold a positive evaluation despite the very short term risk.

Our recommended stoploss: $104.06 (-4.91%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 11 days ago.)

Evaluation:

Waste Management Inc holds several positive signals and is within a weak rising trend. As the old saying says, "Let the trend be your friend.'". We therefore consider it to be a good choice at these current levels and we are expecting further gains during the next 3 months.
