Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (Friday’s close $80.56) rallied from $28.70 in July, 2014, to $69.48 in August, 2016 (A-B) and then settled in a horizontal trading range mostly between $59 and $69 (dashed lines). It declined below this range in early-2018 (C), but began a new up-trend soon thereafter (solid line – D).
Behaviour indicators including the rising 40wMA and the rising trend-line (solid line) confirm the bullish status. There is good support near $69-70 and only a sustained decline below $66-67 would be negative.
Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $84 and $89. The large trading range (dashed lines) supports potentially higher targets.
