Cenovus Energy: Technical Support Level At 20.83


  • 100% technical buy signals.
  • 11 new highs and up 14.32% in the last month.
  • 152.31% gain in the last year.
  • Consensus price target 21.00.

Reminder: I publish a chart each day of the stock that I feel has the best price momentum. Just because I feature that stock does not mean you need to buy it. There are times when you shouldn't buy anything and just sit on the sideline and accumulate cash. Today 77.68% of all stocks were trading below their 200 day moving averages. That should be a sign to use caution.

The Chart of the Day belongs to the crude oil producer Cenovus Energy (CVE). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening function to find the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals then sorted that list by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month. I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation, Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 4/27 the stock gained 14.21%.
