→ It’s been a strong start to the year for FY17 providing some certainty in regard to earnings
→ Under geared balance sheet presents opportunity.
→ Benefitting from the structural shift to e-commerce by consumers & retailers
→ A strong balance sheet offers scope to choose inexpensive developments
→ Geographical diversity
→ Earnings and distribution growth remains
It’s been a solid trend higher since 2009 for GMG with price tending to spurt higher before embarking on long drawn-out consolidation phases. Not that there is anything wrong with this type of price action but patience is definitely required with this stock. However, recovery highs have continued to be exceeded and longer term there’s no reason why this trait can’t continue. However, it now appears that a deeper retracement needs to unfold before the prior uptrend reignites. The reason being, that the movement down off the late August high has been impulsive in nature which should not complete the whole corrective pattern. The recent pivot high also terminated in the typical retracement zone as annotated with the leg higher also unfolding in 3-waves meaning the pattern is likely corrective.
Volume often provides a clue and it’s very evident here that it increased significantly during the prior leg down whilst declining substantially during the recent rally. Again this adds weight to the case for lower prices over the coming weeks. The wave equality projection is down at $6.38 which interestingly enough sits at the exact same level as the 61.8% retracement zone of the whole movement higher that commenced in September 2015. This provides an area of confluence and increases the chances that it’s going to be significant. Bigger picture, a larger corrective pattern down to that aforementioned level would be deemed as being extremely bullish and provide a buying opportunity.
