Rolls Royce shall be avoided for the time being as the company announced on its capital day on 16th November, that a new accounting standard that forbids the acceleration of revenue recognition, will hurt near term results at Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC. However, the analysts feel that the reporting will be more transparent under IFRS 15.
The company finished trading on the London Stock exchange at 675p a share on Tuesday, 27th December. Post the capital market day, the stock reacted negatively to the news on new accounting standard and Rolls Royce fell sharply from 740p to the lows of 635p, a fall of almost 12% in just two days. Currently the stock has been trading below 50 day moving average (DMA), 100 DMA and just a tad above 20 DMA of 701p, 729p and 671p respectively. Rolls-Royce has been trading 35% above the 52 weeks low and 22% below the 52 weeks high. As per the technical analysis and charting techniques, the stock seems to have consolidated at 651p and has been rising since then. However, at the current levels, the stock seems to have tough resistance and an upmove is seen only once the stock breaches 678p successfully. We would advise traders or investors to initiate fresh positions on the stock only if the stock gives a breakout above 678p, otherwise Rolls Royce shall be avoided for some time!
