The stock has had its share of correction as it has corrected from 141p a share to the low of 126p a share. However, we expect the stock to start its northward journey and continue it’s up move. On 19th June, the stock had made a marubozu candle which implies the start of bullish trend. The stock has also been trading above its 20 day moving average (DMA), 50 DMA and 100 DMA of 135p, 133p and 122p respectively. A stock trading above its respective moving averages is a bullish sign as well. Also, the momentum oscillators like RSI and MACD also points out that stock is likely to move up. Therefore, we advise traders or investors to initiate long positions in Cobham Plc at the current level with a short term target of 144p and 150p respectively. The time to achieve these targets could be 20 days to one month. However, the immediate resistance of the stock is at 143p and any breakout above that would take the stock to new highs. Hence, traders or investors are advised to keep an eye at the respective levels and accordingly hedge their positions.
