Kansas City South - KSU - close: 51.41 change: +1.14 stop: 49.45

Company Description:

Why We Like It:
I hesitate to add new plays with the market moving so sharply on extremely low volume. Moves like this are not to be trusted. Keep that in mind as you contemplate this candidate. The railroad stocks have been showing strength and the DJUSRR index is not that far away from a new high. Shares of KSU could try and catch up to its peers. Traders bought the dip a few days ago near its rising 40-dma and its 50% retracement of the July rally. Today's gain is a bullish breakout over the four-week trend of lower highs. We are suggesting bullish positions now or on a dip back towards $50.00. We're listing this play with a stop loss at $49.45. More conservative traders could place their stop closer to $50.00 while aggressive traders could place theirs under $49.00. Our target is the $54.90-56.00 range. FYI: The P&F chart is still bearish from the August correction. Calendar note: KSU is due to present at an investor conference on September 4th.

Picked on August 28 at $51.41
