Nearest Resistance: $23
Nearest Support: $25
Catalyst: Mixed Earnings Results
Finally today, Safeway ( SWY) is getting sold off today after the grocer posted first-quarter numbers that Wall Street wasn't impressed by. While Safeway's earnings met the consensus estimates for the firm, it clearly wasn't enough to appease investors - and the stock is down more than 18% as a result. The drop comes just days after the IPO of Safeway's BlackHawk ( HAWK) gift card unit spurred shares higher.Now Safeway is looking rough from a technical analysis standpoint. While the firm does have a decent support level at $23 to rest on, this massive breakdown shattered the uptrend in shares that's been in place since all the way back in November. More downside looks like the likeliest outcome in the near-to-mid-term.
