Chart Of The Day: Should You Bet On DraftKings?

  • 100% technical buy signals
  • 17 new highs and up 34.93% in the last month
  • 114.20+ Weighted Alpha

The Chart of the Day belongs to the gambling company DraftKings (DKNG). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum and having a Trend Seeker buy signal then used the Flipchart  feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 1/ 22 the stock gained 34.93%.

Analysts and Investor Sentiment -- I don't buy stocks because everyone else is buying but I do realize that if major firms and investors are dumping a stock it's hard to make money swimming against the tide:

  • Wall Street analysts issued 18 strong buy, 7 buy, 7 hold and 1 sell recommendation this month
  • Analysts price targets are $22.50 to $55.000 - with a consensus of $42.25 - 5% below its recent price ( weird with all the string buy and buy opinions)

I found $DKNG back at $34,March madness is coming traditionally it goes up. There is room for it to go back to where it was. I expect some profit taking to take place soon. So maybe a dip before next up to the $50+.
