What’s In A Name? Upside For Adbri

Technicals | Jun 02 2020

By Michael Gable 

In the last week, the S&P/ASX 200 Index has added over 200 points and it is well on its way towards 6000. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it is all about getting exposure to stocks that in March were pricing an apocalypse, but are now trying to recover to more acceptable levels. That is, for now, we continue to favour stocks that benefit from the reopening of the economy. Defensives (those with low growth) will have the odd day up, However, if you are looking longer term, they should underperform from here.

Last week we had the Sydney Morning Herald publish an article of ours that explains why the market is going up and why it can continue to do so. Judging by the since deleted social media posts in response to that, there are a lot of angry people out there who disagree. Angry at me, perhaps, because they have missed out on the easy trade and are watching their hopes of a March retest evaporate before their eyes. At some point they will step in and there may well be a wall of money that pushes stocks to levels where they shouldn't be. So therefore, at some stage the smarter money will start selling. When we see evidence of this, then we will have to take some off the table. But I cannot predict the future. For now, we just have to stay exposed to the right areas and let the market tell us what it wants to do next.

One of the sectors that is being bought up, due to this theme of the economy reopening, are the building stocks. Our tip on James Hardie Industries (JHX) in early May has already returned over 25 per cent, so in today's report we look at the chart of Adbri (formerly Adelaide Brighton) ((ABC)).

In the last few days, ABC broke beyond its recent trading. Price action is also looking very bullish now. There should be further upside from here for ABC. Over the next several weeks, we expect there to be some resistance to come in near $3.40 – $3.60.
