What the Charts Say

Bullish on Ensco PLC Add to ...

Ensco PLC had a sharp decline from $83.24 (U.S.) to $22.38 in 2008 (A-B) followed by a two-part recovery rally to $60.31 (C-D-E). Subsequently, the stock settled into a bullish technical pattern known as a “W” formation (1-2-3 – dotted lines). The recent rise to $65.19 signaled the breakout above the neckline of the pattern (dashed line) and the start of a new up-leg (F). Only a decline below $54-$55 would be negative.

Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $74 and $79. The large “W” formation (dotted lines) supports higher targets.
