Why We Like It:
Investors were not happy with HR's Q1 earnings report on Wednesday. The stock gapped lower today and lost 3.8% on volume about three times the average. Today's decline is a technical breakdown below support near $36.00 and its simple 100-dma. To make matters worse HR has produced a bearish double-top pattern over the last couple of months and its P&F chart points to a $22 target. We are suggesting shorts with HR under $36.00, which as broken support should now act as new overhead resistance. Our target will be the $32.50-32.00 range.
