L-3 Communications - LLL - close: 75.85
LLL was a watch list candidate. This defense contractor's stock price has been consolidating under major resistance at the $75.00 level for months. we wanted to wait and buy calls if shares could close over $75.50. Fortunately, LLL has been showing relative strength and managed to keep its gains on Friday while most of the market rolled over. This is a very bullish breakout. Friday's close at $75.85 meets our entry point requirements.
Our trade will open on Monday morning at the open. More nimble traders may want to wait and try and time an entry on a dip back to the $75.00 level, which should act as brand new support. Our long-term target is $85.00.
The Point & Figure chart for LLL is bullish with an $85 target.
