General Mills Inc. (Friday’s close US$63.55) declined from US$72.95 in 2016 to US$36.42 in 2018 (A-B) below a falling trend-line (dotted line) and below its falling 40-week Moving Average (40wMA). The end of this down-trend was marked with a rise above these indicators in 2019 (C) and was followed with a horizontal trading range mostly between US$48 and US$56 (dashed lines). The recent rise above ±US$57 suggests a breakout and the start of a new up-leg toward higher targets (D). Behaviour indicators including the rising 40wMA confirm the bullish status. The stock is currently in the midst of a minor correction; there is good support at ±US$59 but only a sustained decline below US$55-56 would be negative. Point & Figure measurements provide targets of US$69 and US$74. The large trading range (dashed lines) supports higher targets.
