Here's how Stagecoach shares can travel north

by Alistair Strang from Trends and Targets |

This mid-cap has been stuck in neutral, but our analyst thinks it can accelerate if the price does this.

Stagecoach Group PLC (LSE:SGC) 

Stagecoach (LSE:SGC) shares are actually looking fairly interesting.
The most important facet of their price is at 94p. There are quite a few arguments which anticipated the price hitting such a level, but, instead, we suspect it is bouncing from a low of 113p. Perhaps the implication is of some real strength.

This situation now is fairly useful as movement above 141p looks capable of an initial 156p. Our secondary, if such a point is bettered, calculates at a trend testing 164p.

When we view recent recovery to move the share price above the long-term red uptrend, there is a hint the market wants it up.

The alternate situation is of weakness below 113p. This allows for reversal to 94p with secondary, if broken, at a ridiculous looking 20p. Only with price closure above blue (166p presently) does this threat recede.
