Company Description

Why We Like It:
Investors have been buying up the large drug makers with big dividend. GSK definitely qualifies with a 4.8% yield. The stock appears to be breaking out from its two-week consolidation pattern. We want to see a little more confirmation.

I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $45.75 with a stop loss at $44.40. Our multi-week target is $49.25 (GSK doesn't move very fast).
FYI: The Point & Figure chart for GSK is bullish with a $56 target.

Trigger @ 45.75

Suggested Position: buy GSK stock @ 45.75
