A key level of support has formed in the chart of Consolidated Edison (ED).  If this level is broken, a breakdown could occur.

ED is a holding company for Consolidated Edison Company of New York, or CECONY, and Orange & Rockland, or O&R. These utilities provide steam, natural gas, and electricity to customers in southeastern New York–including New York City–and small parts of New Jersey.

The company’s regulated utilities provide it with consistent earnings. ED is also investing in renewable energy and is currently the second largest solar power producer in North America. Nevertheless, the firm is facing pricing risks due to lower market prices affecting the purchase and sale of its electricity and gas.

Its long-term debt is up from the previous quarter, and up year over year. ED has a current ratio of 0.6, which is concerning as that indicates it might not have sufficient capital to meet its short-term obligations.

While both sales and earnings growth were down slightly this year, both are expected to bounce back next year. The stock has a P/E of 17.3, indicating it is possibly undervalued at its current trading price.

The stock has shown bearish momentum over the near, mid, and long-term. This has led to a “D” Trade Grade in our POWR Ratings system, and is evident in the chart below.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of Edison ED below with added notations:

  Chart of ED provided by TradingView

ED has formed a major level of support at $69 (green) over the course of past year. The stock has repeatedly rallied off the mark, and now it seems to be falling back down to the $69 level again. If the $69 support were to break, lower prices should follow for ED.

If Consolidated Edison were to break below the $69 support level, a short position could be entered, with the expectation for a breakdown.

3 "Strong Buy" Tech Stocks with PE Ratios Under 15

The optimism surrounding COVID-19 vaccine development and distribution has slowed the tech rally that powered the stock markets last year. However, increasing dependence on technology along with rising concerns regarding the efficiency of global vaccine deployment should keep this sector’s momentum going in 2021. Because some tech giants are currently facing regulatory scrutiny, and because most big tech companies are trading at sky-high valuations, we believe that betting on reasonably priced companies like Sony (SNE), HP (HPQ) and Amkor (AMKR) should generate significant returns.
