Company Description

Why We Like It:
HAL is in the basic materials sector. The company operates in the oil services industry. The company reported earnings on October 21st and beat profit estimates by a penny while revenues were in-line with expectations. Following the report HAL has garnered some bullish analyst comments and a couple of higher price targets.

HAL is currently testing short-term resistance near $54.00. A breakout here could signal a run toward its all-time highs near $57.75 or higher. I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $54.15. If triggered our first target is $57.50.
FYI: The Point & Figure chart for HAL is bullish with a $62.00 target.

Trigger @ 54.15

Suggested Position: buy HAL stock @ (trigger)
