The FTSE Risers: Vodafone Group Plc & Unilever too.

#Gold #FTSE There were a couple of standout performers on Monday 24 January, a day which was pretty foul thanks to Russia/Ukraine speculation. At one point, the cynic within wondered if Vodafone were doing well, due to the prospect of enhanced roaming charges due to various country military jumping around Europe. The cause of the share price movement proved fairly boring in comparison, essentially Merger & Acquisition speculation.

The share price closed the session up by 4.5% at 122.86p and appears ready to attempt further movement. Ongoing travel above just 126p now looks capable of gains to an initial 131p with secondary, if exceeded, a more interesting 140p eventually. Glancing at the chart, the visuals imply hesitation can be anticipated at our 140p level as this has presented itself as a glass ceiling level since 2020. The turmoil in the markets, of course, may intrude but given the behaviour of the futures markets on Monday evening, we think the FTSE should experience some recovery near term, hopefully creating an environment where Vodafone can continue to experience some share price recovery.

 

It’s worth noting Vodafone share price has remained firmly below the pre-pandemic high of 155p. While true excitement must be restrained until such a level is exceeded, doubtless along with world peace, Covid eradication, and the UK leadership opting to stop their party’s in Downing St, we’d be inclined to regard closure above the 140p Glass Ceiling as being potentially game changing for Vodafone. The strength of reversals since 2018 has created an environment where sharp price recovery to 220p calculates as possible.

Vodafone share price requires below 108p to force us to re-examine its potentials.  Visually we’re fairly optimistic.

As for Unilever, this experienced an incredible Monday, somehow managing to catapult itself above the Red uptrend. As a result, ongoing traffic above 4055p has the potential of recovery to an initial 4415p with secondary, if bettered, a more pleasing 4910p.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

Our commentary is in two sections. Immediately below are today’s updated comments. If our commentary remains valid, the share can be found in the bottom section which has a RED heading. Hopefully, this will mean you no longer need to flip back through previous reports. HYPERLINKS DISABLED IN THIS VERSION

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is www.trendsandtargets.com.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
