Transocean Ltd, about to surface after Deepwater Horizon?

#Stoxx50 #NK225 As one of the guilty party in the Deepwater Horizon debacle, Transocean share price has taken a little hit since 2010. The corrosion of their share price has actually been worse, the rot starting in 2008 and proving pretty relentless in the years since. However, something interesting appears to be happening, share price movements worth paying attention to.

The Blue line on the chart below dates all the way back 14 years and suddenly, the stock market decided the share price deserved being gapped up above this long term historical downtrend. Equally puzzling, the presence of the Red uptrend since 2020’s pandemic lows. As the chart inset shows, the share price was also gapped up, regaining this uptrend.

Usually, in the grand scheme of things, we get quite exciting when a price is gapped up above its Red uptrend, this generally providing a reliable signal for happy times ahead. We’re always slightly less optimistic, when a price is gapped above a Blue downtrend, this sort of movement often being at the mercy of overall market conditions before things come to fruition. In this particular case, we’re at a loss as we cannot recall an instance when both things happened at the same time.

Maybe it’s an indicator the market is finally forgiving Transocean for trying to burn down the world and instead, is hoping the company intends set fire to the stock market!

The immediate situation certainly allows for some real optimism, suggesting ongoing traffic above $4 should trigger price recovery to an initial $5 next. If exceeded, our longer term secondary calculation works out at a visually sane $7.3. The picture from the chart certainly suggests a risk of hesitation, should $7.3 make an appearance.

 

For everything to go as badly as the companies attempts to cap an oil well in the Mexican Gulf, the share price now needs drip below $2.4 as this would transport it into a zone where “bottom” calculates as a visit to $1.12.

We really suspect Transocean Ltd should prove worth watching in the weeks and months ahead.

AFC Energy, the place for Top Gear…

#Gold #WallSt For some reason, the location of Top Gears racing track was never of interest, often the backdrop of interesting aircraft proving more interesting than a celebrity giving their excuses for a terrible lap before their circuit is complete. A personal guilty secret; despite hating flying, I’m an utter aircraft nerd. Discovering AFC Energy are based at Dunsfold Aerodrome provoked a surge of envy, a working environment surrounded by interesting planes, along with fast cars constantly trying to do decent lap times.

But despite their enviable location, we must concede AFC appear to be doing solid work in the hydrogen fuel cell department, if their website is to be believed. Of all the green initiatives, anything which involves hydrogen, regarded as the most abundant element in the universe, deserves close attention.

 

Since 2009, AFC’s share price has enjoyed a roller coaster ride, lots of false starts and sharp reversals tending indicate they’ve been the focus of internet chatroom ‘enhanced optimism’ campaigns. Even the recent surge to 92p in 2020 appears to be suffering the usual payback, the price currently at 26p and making us question whether the recent slip down to 19p shall be regarded as “bottom”. We certainly hope so as the only drop target we can now calculate below 19p is prefaced with a minus sign!

Our suspicion is the price has bottomed on the current cycle, making us think 28.5p can be viewed as a potential trigger, one which if bettered allows for gains in the direction of a near term 33p. In the event 33p is exceeded, our secondary calculates at 38p, returning the price above a prior, argumentative, uptrend.

Thanks to AFC’s historical shenanigans, there are now some fascinating potentials we can give, should 38p be exceeded sometime in the future. We could tie ourselves in knots trying to explain a stream of different numbers but, essentially, with closure above 38p, the share price makes a careful step into territory where a phase of growth to a future 115p calculates as possible, a new all time high.

If we judge by the emails received, it appears a few folk think “something” is happening with AFC and as a result, it’s probably worth keeping an eye on them.

Thinking the unthinkable about Natwest (NWG.L)

#Brent #Dax

As the entire nation rejoices at Boris Johnston successfully getting someone else to pay for his wedding party, we can sidle into the holiday month with another miracle, mostly un-noticed. Natwest achieved our 248p target from 3 weeks ago, quite literally opting to close the final trading day of July exactly at our target level. As they say in Scotland, “our gobs were smacked!”

It’s worth paying a little attention to movements in the preceding week. Monday proved some early interest, the share price closing the session at 230.2p, just 2/10th of a penny above our trigger level but hey, we’ll take it, the scene effectively set for what was coming. Their Interim Results on Friday thus fell on fertile ground, higher operating profits and a lift in dividend jollying up the party quite nicely. It all proved quite surreal, the share price closing on Thursday at exactly our 230p trigger, then closing on Friday at our 248p target, also achieving a day high of 251.9p. Perhaps very importantly, Natwest share price has now closed a session above Blue on the chart, a downtrend which dates back to 2015. Currently this trend line is sitting around 247.149p, therefore we’re allowed to express further optimism due to the market closing the day at 248.6p.

Folk of a fragile nature may with to sit down for the next bit…

 

Apparently, now above 252p threatens triggering further recovery to an initial 268p. If exceeded, our secondary calculation works out at 281p.

Either one of these target levels “risks” proving quite significant for the longer term, each hopefully capable of permitting the share price to actually CLOSE a session above 257p. From a really big picture perspective, this is liable to prove quite a big deal, doing the unthinkable by elevating a UK retail bank into the realms of three previously unspeakable words. Long Term Hold. All joking aside, closure above 257p allows us to discuss Natwest at 400p without a giggle similar to describing Max Verstappen as 2021’s Formula 1 World Champion.

 

We’d be remiss if we didn’t dilute this drooling optimism with some common sense. Natwest needs slump below Red (210p) to spoil all the above calculations.

Our FTSE for FRIDAY

#FTSE #GOLD

August is normally a “pretend” month. Writers pretend to be working, the markets pretend to be trading, share prices pretend to be moving. But in reality, due to the movers and shakers all being at Butlins for the holiday month, very little actually happens, events marginally more interesting than a UK Tory party leadership farce. Personally, it’s easy to suspect the Conservatives, if they employed an enlightened voting system such as eschewed by politicians everywhere, would elect a candidate named; “None Of The Above”…

However, this time around, we’re a little impressed with some recent movements on the FTSE. While optimism based on the last few sessions of a months trading can often be trashed in the first couple of days of a new month, it’s worth considering a few recent market nudges in the right direction.

Firstly, the FTSE has managed break through the downtrend since the start of June. This ticks a box.

Secondly, the FTSE has managed to close above the prior highs of this downtrend. This ticks a happier box.

Thirdly, the visuals don’t entirely stink and the FTSE needs slump below 7,300 points to spoil our optimism.

Fourth, a bit contentious, is our calculation the FTSE now intends head to 7,700 points. By exceeding the downtrend since 2018, in this scenario, the index will also find itself trading above any previous levels of 2022, implying happy days are ahead. This potential ticks yet another major box.

Adding everything together, the indications currently suggest August should prove interesting for the FTSE.

From a nearer term perspective, things still manage to suggest optimism as above 7397 now calculates with the potential of gains to an initial 7426 points. If exceeded, our secondary ambition works out at a pretty amazing 7513 points. Beware the danger (again) of a self serving opening second spike upward at the market open, due to the risk of this being used to slow everything down. Thursday produced such behaviour and unfortunately, the Futures markets ran ahead after hours, topping out at 7418 despite the FTSE ending the day at 7345 points.

Hopefully FTSE futures relaxation will allow the FTSE on Friday to open very near to 7345 points, ideally allowing a day of some quite reasonable upward movement.

If everything intends go wrong (near term), below 7308 points allows weakness to an initial 7283 with secondary, if broken, at 7246 and hopefully a solid rebound.

 

Have a good weekend and, if you’re off to Butlins and don’t like Formula 1, you may wish to consider reading Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, the first sci-fi book I’ve read in many years which proved a complete page turner. He also wrote The Martian, made into a film last year but this book is in a different galaxy.

Convatec Group Plc, worth watching we think

Convatec Group Plc (LSE:CTEC)

Usually, in an attempt to produce something which is more than just about numbers, we take a glance at what a company is about. Our usual sources, the corporate website and Wikipedia, generally will provide something interesting or funny. With Convatec, the company being pretty focussed on their medical product ranges, and for those with an absurd imagination, (such as myself) information about a company who specialise in “Wound and skin care, ostomy care, continence care, critical care, infusion devices” proved a step too far.

Suffice to say, they’re the real deal.

 

To go straight to the numbers, we actually quite like the current position of Convatec share price. At time of writing, they’re trading around 229p, the share “only” needing above 234p to hopefully trigger some movement toward an initial 250p. While such a movement may not sound like much, visually it’s quite useful, exceeding the long term downtrend sine 2017 and better still, should it trade above 250p, our long term secondary of 277p becomes a valid ambition.

Curiously, we increasingly find ourselves in a strange position with price movements. For instance, the scenario above is thanks to share price history AC (After Covid) but if we opt to review the big picture potentials BC (Before Covid), a quite different scenario is presented, one where we’d typically view the share as heading to 300p with secondary, if bettered, a longer term 365p. It’s possible insufficient time has gone by to allow us to understand which model the market is working to. When the near universal ‘Pandemic Drop’ occurred in March 2020, does this represent a point in time at which the market has opted to start again in calculating price movements. Or will it be the case, once AC movements become exhausted, shall Big Picture influences take over?

 

Regardless, we suspect Convatec shall prove worth keeping an eye on, in the weeks ahead. The price needs below Red (174 currently) to cause a panic.

Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, a little giant.

#FTSE #SP500

The name successfully conceals an organisation which has, since 1909, been trading internationally with some considerable success. It was all the fault of Henry Ford and his everyman car, the Model T. Rubber plantations in Asia needed money to expand fast, due to the burgeoning demand for car tyres, and the original incarnation of the company stepped forward.

A few years later, their name changed to Scottish Mortgage and Investment Trust, the company expanded their interests, now including equity markets worldwide. LSE:SMT once had a chairman who famously expressed “The fact is that this country has got itself into a really dreadful mess… We continue to have more confidence in investment prospects overseas than in the UK“. This was in 1975 but it’s certain the sentiment remains true, their activities still being global.

 

From an immediate share price perspective, there’s quite a lot pointing toward optimism. But unfortunately, the price need only tumble below 800p to risk triggering reversal to 740p next. Visually, such an ambition isn’t terrible, essentially matching the level of the Blue trend break at the start of July. Normally we’d anticipate a bounce should such a reversal occur, especially as things become dangerous in the event 740p breaks as “bottom” calculates at 619p, a price level from which it’s difficult to visualise any quick recovery.

However, the share price “only” needs exceed the recent high of 884p to enter the realms of hope, calculating with an initial recovery potential to 978p initially with secondary, if exceeded, a more encouraging target at 1164p.

Our inclination is to suspect Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust share price intends recovery in the months ahead as the market made a very deliberate movement to break through the immediate Blue downtrend. Fingers crossed time!

Yellow Cake Plc, nice but don’t eat it!

#Gold #SP500 It appears Yellow Cake shares are about as near to uranium enjoying a dedicated index as possible. To quote from the company website: “Yellow Cake is a uranium focused company offering direct exposure to the spot uranium price without exploration, development, mining or processing risk

“. It appears the company owns and stores uranium oxide in various locations in both Canada and France.

Barely a month goes by without someone enquiring about uranium, invariably discussing North American based companies, as increasingly it seems many investors are becoming confident “Nuclear” shall become the greenest route to the future. Personally, an expectation the new Rolls Royce micro reactors shall provide a welcome boost to the company share price, is the reason we perhaps watch the share too closely, suspecting at some point it shall boost upward, regardless of whatever is going on with the aviation industry.

 

Yellow Cake Plc has certainly enjoyed quite strong and steady movement since the inevitable pandemic low back in 2020. Through thick and thin, the share price has paid enormous respect to the Red uptrend on the chart below.

The implication of this slavish devotion suggests a slight threat of any future weakness below 313p triggering reversal to an initial 287p with secondary, if broken, at 259p and hopefully a bounce. In many ways, the share price dare not close a session below 259p as, longer term, we currently cannot calculate any sort of reliable bottom.

On a more positive note, above the immediate Blue downtrend, presently just 261p, works out with some useful potentials as it risks triggering recovery to an initial 373p with secondary, if exceeded, at a longer term 409p and some very possible hesitation. With closure above 409p, we shall be required to revisit our tea leaves, thanks to some quite interesting long term potentials.

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.
