Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (Friday’s close $49.85) moved within a large trading range mostly between $26 and $34 from 2016 to 2018 (dashed lines). It had a breakout above $34 in early 2019 and reached a high of $46.10 in February, 2020 (A). After a temporary decline in March, 2020 (B), the stock resumed its uptrend, but ran into resistance a few months later near the previous high of $47 (shaded area).

At the beginning of this year, Alimentation once again declined below its 40-week Moving Average (40wMA – C), but quickly rose again and pierced above $47 to signal a breakout and the start of a new uptrend (D). A better entry may occur near $47-$48; only a sustained decline below ±$44 would be negative.

Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $54 and $59. Higher targets are visible.
