Company Description

Why We Like It:
GGG is in the industrial goods sector. Shares have been consolidating sideways under resistance near $50.00 while still building a bullish trend of higher lows. Now shares are just now starting to breakout past resistance.

I am suggesting we launch bullish positions tomorrow morning at the open but only if both GGG and the S&P 500 index open positive. Our target is $54.50. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for GGG is bullish with a long-term $77 target.

Do not enter position unless GGG and the S&P 500 are both positive at the open

suggested position: buy GGG stock @ (the open)
