Nearest Resistance: $82
Nearest Support: $72Catalyst: Earnings Miss >>Health Care Stocks Bought and Sold by Hedge Funds Lo and behold, we're seeing an almost identical setup in mid-cap instrument manufacturer Waters (WAT) today. Like Netflix, earnings are driving this stock this afternoon, after it posted a miss on its first-quarter results before the opening bell this morning. While investors had been expecting the firm to earn $1.09, WAT only brought $1 per share to its bottom line in the last three months. Waters spent most of 2012 forming a topping pattern with support at $87. Shares closed just under that price yesterday, indicating that demand was waning ahead of today's open. Today's massive breakdown sent shares well under their next meaningful support level at $82; now that price is resistance. Shorts should consider aiming for a target at $72. That said, like Netflix, this is another higher-risk trade. Risk-averse traders need not apply.
