Analysts' consensus one-year target price for RMD is currently just above the 52-week high of $42.30. There's room for, and the possibility of, upward earnings guidance and thus a higher price target. Shares dipped to $38.08 on Nov. 16 after it paid its quarterly dividend of 17 cents.
The current annual dividend provides a yield-to-price of 1.7%. If you're fortunate enough to pick up some shares on a price correction to $38.50, that yield-to-price rises to nearly 1.8%. You might want to watch the stock's movement for the next few days while doing your own due diligence about RMD.
If you can't wait to own some shares I'd recommend you consider a trailing stop loss that the market-makers won't see, such as the one referred to in the link above. This will limit your downside risk while opening the door to letting the share price move higher.
