Two Harbors Investments (TWO) Just Reclaimed the 20-Day Moving Average
Two Harbors Investments (TWO - Free Report) reached a significant support level, and could be a good pick for investors from a technical perspective. Recently, TWO broke through the 20-day moving average, which suggests a short-term bullish trend.
The 20-day simple moving average is a well-liked trading tool because it provides a look back at a stock's price over a 20-day period. Additionally, short-term traders find this SMA very beneficial, as it smooths out short-term price trends and shows more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.
The 20-day moving average can show signals that are similar to other SMAs as well. If a stock's price is moving above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive. When the price falls below the moving average, it can signal a downward trend.
TWO has rallied 7.4% over the past four weeks, and the company is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) at the moment. This combination suggests TWO could be on the verge of another move higher.
Once investors consider TWO's positive earnings estimate revisions, the bullish case only solidifies. No earnings estimate has been lowered in the past two months, compared to 1 raised estimates, for the current fiscal year, and the consensus estimate has increased as well.
Investors may want to watch TWO for more gains in the near future given the company's key technical level and positive earnings estimate revisions.
