Company Description

Why We Like It:
ETN is in the industrial goods sector. Shares appear to be stuck in a multi-month bearish trend of lower highs and lower lows. The stock recently broke down under the $40.00 mark and spent a few days consolidating sideways. Now ETN has resumed its down trend.

I am suggesting bearish positions at the open tomorrow. Yesterday's high was $40.25. We'll start with a stop loss at $40.35. Our exit target is $35.25. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for ETN is bearish with a $28 target.

Suggested Position: short ETN stock @ (the open)
