That’s interesting, but what is the chart telling us?
What does the chart look like?
I find it helpful to bring up a chart. The daily chart of IRI.
Over the last four and bit months the general market has been sold down heavily, not so with IRI shares. That should have made it a stock of interest.
You could argue that the stock made a lower low on the daily chart at 25 August, which is noted on the chart. However, you have to read the chart in the context of the time. This low formed following the big Dow plunge, where the Dow lost a thousand points very quickly over four trading days from 19 to 24 August.
Good stocks got caught in the panic and backdraft of all that selling. 25 August proved to be a great buying opportunity to add IRI and other quality stocks to your portfolio. That’s all very easy to say in hindsight I know, but I have plenty more to say on this point. My writing on the subject is over at Cycles, Trends and Forecasts.
The chart is telling you (for those who can read a chart) that this company is growing revenue. A thousand point plunge on the Dow does not alter that fact.
What now for IRI shares?
The chart is breaking further into all-time new highs; there has to be reason it should do so. We could perhaps expect further positive news from this company. Let’s wait and see.
First and foremost, know the real estate cycle, then you can read the charts in the context of previous cycles. When you do that you have such an advantage and you can be ready for the next opportunity as it comes.
