#GOLD #SP500 A Google search for Centrica discovered they define themselves as an Electrical Services Company, a neat trick for the folk behind British Gas. As an international energy & services provider, they also proved inept with website design. Few things are more irritating than visiting a companies web presence and be faced with a survey asking “what do you think of us?”, before even getting the chance to view the usual corporate blurb.
It’s funny, one would suspect a company specialising in energy would experience a flourish to their share price during the cold months of winter. In the case of Centrica, this is rarely the case and we needed travel back 5 years before the share price experienced a cheerful first quarter. Maybe they are due a break in 2021 but so far, things tend reflect the lethargic motion of the FTSE rather than cold, long, nights requiring lots of electricity and gas for heating and lots of income for this multinational. Perhaps this year shall be different!
Presently trading around the 50p mark, the share needs above 54p to convince of happy days ahead. In such a scenario, we’re looking for recovery to an initial 58.5p with secondary, if exceeded, calculating at a longer term 73p. In the event of this triggering, visually the tightest stop looks like 40p.
The implications, should the 40p level break, are of coming weakness to an initial 31p, rather effectively matching the Covid drop from last year. Should 31p break, our final hope for a bounce resides at an ultimate bottom of 18p.
By most standards, Centrica share price dwells in a dangerous place currently but visually required little work to extract itself from the dark side.
