  • Autoliv - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Apr 9, 2014 5:10 PM | about stocks: ALV

    The Chart of the Day is Auotliv (NYSE:ALV). I found the stock by sorting today's All Time High list for the best technical indicators then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/6 the stock gained 10.41%.

      ALV is a leader in automotive safety, a pioneer in both seatbelts and airbags, and a technology leader with the widest product offering for automotive safety. All the leading automobile manufacturers in the world are its customers.

    Barchart technical indicators:

    • 100% Barchart technical buy signals
    • Trend Spotter buy signal
    • Above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages
    • 13 new highs and up 6.23% in the last month
    • Relative Strength Index 67.13%
    • Barchart computes a technical support level at 100.35
    • Recently traded at 102.92 with a 50 day moving average of 96.33

    Fundamental factors:


    • Market Cap $ 9.88 billion
    • P/E 17.38
    • Dividend yield 2.09%
    • Revenue predicted to grow 5.50% this year and another 5.80% next year
    • Earnings are estimated to increase by 9.50% this year, an additional 14.80% next year and continue to increase at an annual rate of 7.48% for he next 5 years
    • Wall Street analysts are all over the place with 1 strong buy, 2 buy, 10 hold, 3 under perform and 2 sell recommendations on the stock

    As the auto industry recovers this stock should have solid gains. Use the 50 day moving averages as a signal of weakness and the 100 day moving average to preserve profits.
