The 09/17/20 post “Pfizer Bullish Opportunity” recommended buying Pfizer (PFE) on speculation that they could be the first of nine companies to develop a Coronavirus vaccine. Today 11/09/20 PFE announced that they had a Coronavirus vaccine. PFE surged on the news. On 10/19/20 the post “Pfizer Pushing Higher” recommended adding one quarter of the original PFE position on a move above 39.45.
Today’s 11/09/20 PFE gapped far above 39.45 and opened at 41.86 – this is the entry point for the add on position. Typically, stocks open near the high or low for day. In this case the open was close to the high of the day. The subsequent decline was deep and weakened the bullish case for PFE. Also note the daily Stochastic is close to a bearish crossover.
Use a move below 38.20 as a stop loss for the one quarter position add on, 38.20 is just below the low of the day at 38.38.
The next post on 11/10/20 will discuss the S&P 500.
