Cinemark Holdings (CNK) is approaching a key resistance level.  If the level is surpassed a breakout could occur.

CNK is the third- largest motion picture exhibitor in the United States. The company operates 4,568 screens in 37 states and 12 Latin American countries.

The company has been struggling due to limited attendance amid the coronavirus pandemic. But it has plenty of liquidity to hold it over until the vaccine distribution takes effect and moviegoers start coming back. Last week B. Riley raised its price target for the stock to $28, which is over 50% higher than its current price.

CNK had $826 million in cash as of the end of the last quarter, compared with $3.6 billion in long-term debt and only $ million in short-term debt. While sales are estimated to be down 88.2% (year over year) in the fourth quarter, they are expected to rise 174.5% for 2021.

It has a very low 8.29 trailing P/E and 1.63 Price to Sales ratio. The company has shown some recent weakness, but is up over 15% for the past month. This has led to a “Neutral” rating in our POWR Ratings system.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of CNK below with my added notations:

 Chart of CNK provided by TradingView

Over the past two months, CNK had formed a key level of resistance at the $18 (green) mark. The stock broke through that level last week on route to the next level of resistance at $20 (red). Now that CNK is pulling back, the old $18 resistance may act as new $18 support in preparation for a run higher.

A long trade could be entered if CNK breaks the $20 resistance level.

Avoid These 3 Cathie Wood Stocks in April

Cathie Wood’s contrarian investment strategy may not be ideal for short-term, risk-averse investors with limited funds because most of Wood’s bets require a considerable holding period. So, we think Wood favorites Shopify (SHOP), Spotify (SPOT), and Zillow (Z), which could witness a pullback in the near term, are best avoided now.
