Bullish on SXC Health Solutions Add to ...

Following our first recommendation on SXC Health Solutions Corp. (Dec. 6, 2008, $9.68 – adjusted for two-for-one split), the stock started a sharp rise above its rising 40-week moving average and reached $62.64 (A) for a 547-per-cent appreciation at that time. Subsequently, SXC declined below its 40wMA (B) and settled in a trading range between $45 and $62 (dashed lines). Recent price action to $66.37 (C) signalled the breakout from the large range and the start of a new upleg. Only a decline below about $56 would be negative.

Point & Figure measurements provide initial targets of $74 and $84.
