Zip Co: Support Should Hold

Technicals | Oct 06 2020

This story features ZIP CO LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: Z1P

By Michael Gable 

We continue to see opportunity in stocks linked to the reopening of the Australian economy. Apart from travel stocks, we can also see an opportunity in cyclical names which should recover well from here. Today we look at Zip Co ((Z1P)).

Finally, the other potential big trade that has caught our attention is energy. We are optimistic that oil and gas stocks will be trading higher in 12 months. Unfortunately, they have had a pretty rough few months. However, price action in the last couple of days is telling us that the selling may have finally exhausted itself and we could see a nice turnaround here in the energy names. We probably need another day or two to confirm that, but as always, we tend to spot these things earlier than most people and it is definitely a sector to keep an eye on right now.

Like most BNPL stocks, Z1P ran a bit too hard at the end of August and has seen its share price fall back to where it was 2 months ago. We have been watching this support level near $6 and are now satisfied that it should hold and Z1P should therefore rally higher from here. The stock is at the start of the move so current levels are a buying opportunity.
