No Rush To Buy Vocus

By Michael Gable 

The US markets were closed last night and we have the RBA interest rate decision today, but our view is that the Australian index should continue to show a little more weakness from these levels with September likely to be a negative month for the market. Today we look at Vocus Communications ((VOC)) which is one of the "popular stocks" out there in the market.

VOC has clearly eased back since the May high, but what is interesting is the amount of volume that has gone through in the last few weeks. This volume has pushed the stock down almost another $1 since they reported. This weakness means that we could see VOC retest the longer term uptrend line in the low $7's. Also, if VOC is pulling back in 3 waves, and wave 3 is 1.6 times the size of wave 1 (which is often the case), then that also means a target of the low $7's. Buyers can therefore wait for a little more weakness before expecting support to come back in.
