From a technical perspective, HAIN is currently trending below its 50-day moving average and above its 200-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock has been downtrending for the last two months, with shares falling from a high of $73.72 to its recent low of $56.46 a share. During that downtrend, shares of HAIN have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, the stock has started to rebound off that low and is now moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade.
If you're in the bull camp on HAIN, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $62.11 to $63.33 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 835,943 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then HAIN will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $66.21 to $70 a share.
