Wendy's (WEN): Moving Average Crossover Alert
September 28, 2016


Trades from $3

Are you a technical investor? If so, it may be time to consider The Wendy's Company (WEN - Analyst Report) for your portfolio. The company just saw its 50 Day Moving Average breakout above its 200 Day Simple moving average, a trend that could indicate some bullishness in the future for WEN.

This trend may have already begun, as shares of WEN have moved by higher by 7.7% in just the past month. Plus, WEN has earned itself a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), so there is plenty of reason to believe that the run for Castlight has plenty of life left. 

More bullishness may especially be the case when investors consider what has been happening for WEN on the earnings estimate revision front lately. No estimate has gone lower in the past two months, compared to 5 higher, while the consensus estimate has also moved higher too.

So given this move in estimates, and the positive technical factors, investors may want to watch this breakout candidate closely for more gains in the near future.
