Man Group shares are worth watching

Already approaching prices rarely seen in the past 14 years, shares in this asset manager could do even better, according to independent analyst Alistair Strang.

Man Group (LSE:EMG)'s share price hasn’t been achieving anything of great interest but recent price movements in relation to the downtrend since 2008 are perhaps of note, maybe even indicative of happier days ahead.

Currently, above 280p should trigger a change in fortunes, calculating with the potential of a lift to an initial 293p with our secondary, if exceeded, working out at a longer term 350p.

Unusually, and something worth watching for with this particular share, will be closure above 283p signalling the share price closing above the circled high which comprises part of the 2008 downtrend. This shall be regarded as quite a big deal for the long term, indicating the share price has eased a toe over the starting line for further long-term recovery where a distant (and impossible looking) 551p calculates as possible.

Perhaps it’s not as unlikely as we’re suggesting, given the company claims to be trading in over 800 markets around the world. 

If things intend to go wrong, we’d regard weakness below 252p as troubling, risking promoting reversal to an initial 240p with secondary, if broken, at 227p.
