Buy Recommendations

RHC is retesting the lows from 2017 in the form of a “falling wedge”. This often signifies a reversal of a downtrend. With the P/E coming back to levels not seen in years, we expect buying to come in right here and lift RHC back towards $70

We have waiting for lower levels on the banks for a number of months now and the big 4 have finally all hit our downside targets. They are now finding support at the right levels and therefore represent a buying opportunity. Of the banks about to go ex-dividend, WBC looks particular strong on the chart.

Hold Recommendations

We had previously been looking at levels close to $28 to buy BHP. Now that we have done that, we are still comfortable with where it is heading to from here, that is, the mid $30’s. BHP therefore is hold until we see those upside targets.

XRO has been a great trading stock for us in the last year and despite it recently making a new high for the year, we still rate it as a hold. The charts indicate that the shares are on course to rally towards $40.

Sell Recommendations

When APT was near $7, we warned our newsletter subscribers that it would fall towards $5.50. Price action remains bearish for APT and we have lowered our targets further to $4.80. Any rallies in APT are an opportunity to sell.

Price action remains weak for ORE with volume increasing on the way down. It may bounce towards $5.50 in the short term, but at this stage, looking at the technicals, we can see levels back to the low $4’s being achieved in the next few months.
