Why We Like It:
Crude oil hit another new high today with the December 2005 oil contract trading over $66 a barrel. This meteoric rise in oil is starting to unnerve investors in the transportation sector. Companies in that group suffer due to rising fuel costs. Perusing the transports we noticed that trucking company YELL's stock has produced a head-and-shoulders pattern. Today's 1.6% decline broke technical support at its 50-dma while also breaking the neckline. The H&S pattern points toward support near the $48.00 level so our target will be $48.50-48.00.
