Pnc Infratech stock has broken out of a 19-week, 25% deep Consolidation 2-weeks ago. However, the stock is still offering investors an opportunity to get on board as the current price is only 6% away from the ideal buy price of INR 290.
The stock ended the week on a bullish note. It closed 3.3% up on a 54% greater volume than the 10-week average. You want to see a strong close on heavy volume like this before initiating a position. That signals institutional buying. You would also want to see the same price volume momentum to continue in the coming weeks.
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 15.45% away from the 10-week moving average.
In the last twelve months, Pnc Infratech has rallied nearly 103.6% as compared to 47.7% for the Nifty500. It has a Relative Strength Rating of 60. We definitely would like to see 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 Pnc Infratech can maintain this outperformance, it could make sense as a CANSLIM trade.
Another key part of the jigsaw is institutional sponsorship. Pnc Infratech has an Accumulation/Distribution Rating of 'A'. This represents heavy institutional buying over the past 13 weeks. The number of institutional sponsors and shares held by the sponsors, both increased in the last reported quarter.
On the earnings front, Pnc Infratech has an excellent EPS Rank of 97, which indicates consistency in earnings. The earnings and sales for the stock have grown by 24% and 35%, respectively over the past three years. Its 3-years earnings stability is 26, on a 0 to 99 scale (lower the better). Over the past five years, the earnings and sales for the stock have grown by 58% and 24%, respectively. The 5-years earnings stability is 36. The return on equity for the last reported year is 18%.
The stock belongs to the industry group of Bldg-Heavy Construction. You would still want to see some improvement in the industry group rank for the group. The current industry group rank is 105. The current price of Pnc Infratech is -3% off from its 52-week high price and 142% above its 52-week low price.
