Target (TGT) Stock Price Breaking Down?

April 10, 2012 Leave a comment

Looks like the Target (TGT) stock price is breaking down. Here is the TGT 1-year stock price chart.

Target TGT stock has been overbought recently

It appears that the TGT stock price is moving from a overbought status as demonstrated by the channel in the bottom chart. Whether this will continue is unknown, but it seems likely.

Now, let’s look at the TGT 5-year stock price chart.

Target TGT stock price may not reach much higher

It appears that around the $60 level, TGT has difficulty breaking through. Also, for the past several years, TGT appears overbought. At these price levels, I don’t think I would be looking to purchase TGT as it does not appear to have much room to rise, and may – in fact – fall more in price.

JCPenney (JCP) Look out for Falling Stock Price

Everyday Low Prices: Where have I heard that one before?

JCPenney, masters of the original, are promoting low, everyday prices.

Despite trying to be the most interesting store in the world, it appears that JCPenney’s (JCP) stock price is about to fall like the prices inside of a Wal-Mart.

JCPenney: Look out for Falling Stock Prices

JCPenney's stock price has fallen through the bottom of its Andrew's Pitchfork and are sitting right on top of the sell trigger.

Looking at the JCP chart above, its price has fallen through the bottom of the Andrew’s Pitchfork and is now sitting right on the sell trigger line. If the price falls much below Friday’s close of $36.24, then the JCP stock price is going to fall faster than the price of ice melt in Wal-Mart after a mild Missouri winter.

JCP has managed to bounce off the sell trigger line for now. That being said, it still isn’t a pretty picture as it had already fallen through the bottom of the Andrew’s Pitchfork above and still sits precariously close to the sell trigger line. My gut tells me that JCP will soon break that line and continue downward. But hey, maybe it’s hunger pangs since I haven’t had lunch yet.

Looks like JCP is slipping a bit.

It’s not easy trying to be like Apple I suppose, what with all those shiny new iPads that CNBC has been slobbering over all day (what a bunch of shills). Of course that won’t keep me from buying my wife one.

But, just because JCP has a former Apple executive in charge doesn’t mean they can convert the JCPenney at our local mall into an Apple Store. I don’t think they can. I rarely go to the old line retailers like JCPenney or Sears. There is just something very old-fashioned and unappealing about them to me. I’ll let the over 50 crowd have them. I much prefer a hit and run trip to Wal-Mart, Target, or better yet, shopping online at Amazon than going down to boring old JCPenney. It looks like I am not alone in that sentiment.
