Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) is trading sideways, within a range, and a rectangle pattern has formed that could lead to a breakout or breakdown sometime soon.
BMY discovers, develops, and markets drugs for various indications, such as cardiovascular, oncology, and immune disorders. The company’s immuno-oncology drug, Opdivo, and its blood thinner, Eliquis, drive growth for the company’s profits. The label expansion of Opdivo should continue to boost revenue.
Take a look at the 1-year chart of Bristol BMY below with added notations:
After a very volatile spring, BMY has moved into a trading range and has formed a key resistance around $61 (red), and an important area of support around $57 (green). At some point, the stock will have to break either above the $61 or below the $57 mark.
A trade could look to buy BMY when it exceeds $61, with the assumption of a breakout. Or short BMY if it falls below $57, with the assumption of a breakdown.
Keep an eye out on August 6th for BMY’s latest earnings report.
Have a great trading day!
