The chart looks good technically. The 200-day moving average is trending nicely below the current price. However, the 60-day moving average has turned lower.
If Pier 1reports a favorable earnings release, expect the price to retest the 90-day moving average, currently at 17.06. Pier 1 recently sold off after a seemingly favorable reporting of sales.
