Stock has broken out of an 8-week, 17% deep Cup Without Handle Base 3-weeks ago. However, the stock is still worth watching as the current price is only 2% away from the ideal buy price of INR 367.
The stock ended the week on a negative note. It closed -0.5% down on a 2% higher volume than the 10-week average. You want to see a strong close on the heavy volume before initiating a position. That signals institutional buying. But do not conclude anything just based on this week’s action. A prudent approach would be to watch the price volume momentum in the coming trading sessions.
The key trend lines, 10 and 40-week moving averages are at a comfortable position. The current trends of both the averages are upward and the 10-week moving average is trending above the 40-week moving average. The current price of the stock is trading around 11.3% away from the 10-week moving average.
In the last twelve months, Dollar Industries has rallied nearly 159.2% as compared to 48.2% for the Nifty500. It has a Relative Strength Rating of 73. We definitely would like to see an improvement in the rating. At this point, we are taking a step back and focusing on the RS Line.
The Relative Strength Line of the stock is offering a lot of encouragement to investors. It has been making good progress in the last four weeks. The overall long-term trend of the line is also trending upward. If Dollar Industries can maintain this outperformance, it could make sense as a CANSLIM trade.
Dollar Industries stock has strong institutional support. The Accumulation/Distribution Rating of 'B' represents heavy institutional buying over the past 13 weeks. Although the shares held by institutions dropped in the last quarter, the number of institutions holding the stock increased at the same time. This shows increasing interest among the institutions.

The earnings and sales for the stock have grown by 6% and 1%, respectively over the past three years. Its 3-years earnings stability is 13, on a 0 to 99 scale (lower the better). Over the past five years, the sales for the stock have grown by 3%; however, the earnings growth remained muted at -8%. The 5-years earnings stability is 19. The return on equity for the last reported year is 17%.
