Final Thoughts & Comments

  • Due to balance sheet and income statement, this company has more room to decline.
  • Looking at the charts, its getting close to testing it’s resistance at $13 from June 2015. If it breaks past the $13 point, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it test $14 – $15.
  • However, if it fails to break $13, the share price will fall back into the low $10s and hopefully, the $8 range, at which I would buy given strong support at the $8 price level.
