>>3 Hot Stocks to Trade (or Not)
Raytheon is currently forming a double-top pattern, a setup that's formed by two swing highs that hit their heads at approximately the same price level. The sell signal comes on a breakdown below the near-term support level for shares, which is right at $65. Shares are sitting just above that price level this morning. If you own RTN right now, consider a crack below $65 to be your sell signal.
Raytheon practically went parabolic in late April, so it's not a huge surprise that this stock is looking primed to correct harder than the rest of the market. Once saving grace for this stock is the fact that the relatively short pattern height in RTN gives it a less painful downside target at $62. If you're looking to enter a long in this stock, that's where I'd look to be a buyer again.
