Bega Cheese: Melting Up?

This story features BEGA CHEESE LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: BGA

By Michael Gable 

The S&P/ASX 200 Index broke to a new high three weeks ago, before easing back. It then made a new high on Friday, before easing back again. It seems a little unsure of itself and is definitely lacking the swagger of the US market. With US share markets closed overnight, it is unlikely to do much today. However, the fact that markets have had ample opportunity these last few months to sell down, ranging from inflationary fears to "sell in May" superstitions, it leaves us reasonably confident that it should generally grind higher from here.

Under the surface though, there hasn't been a lot of follow-through on individual stocks. A look at the very low number of stocks trading above their 20-day moving average is proof of this. However, if we were to try and identify any themes or areas to be invested in, we continue to maintain that cyclical stocks such as resources, banks, and consumer discretionary are the areas to be exposed to. On the back of this, this week we've  looked at Bega Cheese ((BGA)).

In late January, BGA broke out of an ascending triangle and rallied from about $5.50 to $6.50. It has since eased back and towards the uptrend line. Yesterday's strong move higher could be a sign that good support is coming back in here and BGA is now ready to resume the uptrend. Current levels are therefore a buying opportunity with initial stops to be considered just under the uptrend line.
