What Now for Adelaide Brighton Ltd?

A broker has labelled this stock as expensive based on fundamentals. I don’t trade broker recommendations, nor fundamentals; I trade the chart and that may well be forecasting positive revenue growth.

You could also look at the charts of similar stocks strongly linked to the construction sector — Boral [BLD], James Hardie [JHX] and larger players such as Mirvac Group [MGR], Lend Lease [LLC] and Stockland [SGP], just to name a few.

So what’s next for the economy at large? The charts are telling you. But to take advantage of that, you need to understand where we are in the 18 year real estate cycle — and how to read a chart. Both of which we know a bit about at Cycles, Trends and Forecasts. Go here to find out more.

Don’t let the ‘bleak brigade’ blind you to the opportunities that lie ahead. With lenders competing, credit more plentiful, rate cuts and more offshore buyers, we have a big set up coming, perhaps the biggest yet.
