Brambles: Worth Holding

Technicals | May 17 2022

This story features BRAMBLES LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: BXB

By Michael Gable 

As we mentioned last week, a breaking of support on the S&P 500 Index means that we need to be prepared for lower levels on the index. That view hasn't changed. As we noted last week, you have to consider whether it is worth taking up a new trade right when the overall index looks bearish at this point in time. But these things are always very dynamic which means that we may well have a more bullish looking market and therefore some higher probability set-ups pretty soon. Our analysis this week is on Brambles ((BXB)).

The share price is at the same level from early 2000, so any trends in BXB are short term. However, even before yesterday's news regarding CVC [takeover proposal from the private equity firm], it appeared as though BXB had put in a bottom earlier this year and the share price had been building up nicely. We now have a situation where resistance is nearby at $12.50 and support is back near $10.50, so the share price is in the middle of those levels. Charting wise, it looks like a hold here.

[FNArena database brokers responding this morning to the takeover offer agree the implicit price undervalues the company, suggestsing a higher offer may yet be needed.]
