On Dec. 3, 2011 ($39.74 U.S.) we suggested that Carter’s Inc. had a breakout from a base that supported higher targets (dashed lines). Subsequently, the stock rallied to $57.27 for a 44-per-cent appreciation at that time (A). Carter’s then settled in a large trading range between $50 and $57 for most of 2012 (dotted lines). The recent rise to $61.22 (B) confirmed the breakout from this range and suggests higher targets. Current levels provide a good entry point (C). Only a sustained decline below about $55 would be negative.
Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $69 and $79.
