Why We Like It:
The consolidation in the transportation sector has turned into a bearish, descending channel. Investors are worried about what rising fuel costs will do to profit margins and sales. Shares of trucking company YELL are leading the group lower. The stock broke down below support near $47.50-48.00 about a week ago. This move produced a new quadruple-bottom breakdown sell signal on its Point & Figure chart that now points to a $34 target. We like the failed rally at $48.00 on Friday and believe traders can use it as a new bearish entry point. Our target is going to be the $42.00-40.00 range. We are starting the play with a wide stop but once YELL trades under $46 again we'll probably adjust the stop lower.
