Trends and Targets for 11/04/2018

Share this

ROCKHOPPER EXPLORATION (LSE:RKH) As politicians prove, constantly, you need to actually do something to become interesting. Though with column inches devoted to May, Trump, Corbyn, Cable, we could be fooled into believing politicians are hyperactive rather than media starved for copy!

Rockhopper, unfortunately, could lead a political party if its share price is anything to go by. In a few months, it will be two years without the price actually doing anything of note. Most folk, suffering such extended periods of monotony, grow bored scanning their morning RNS reports whereas we scribble lines in the hope of identifying the magic trend. To be honest, sometimes both efforts prove fruitless but like RNS vultures, we never stop checking.

In the case of The Penguin, there's a reasonable chance it has not been nailed to its perch. It currently needs exceed BLUE at roughly 26.357p to suggest some movement is coming. A surge such as this should prove capable of growth to an initial 30p. Visually, this would prove "a good thing", achieving a higher high than the last time the price bonked against BLUE and suggesting should 30p be bettered, continued growth toward 35p can be expected.

At such a point, we'd prefer stir the tea leaves again as while we can calculate beyond 35p, we're not entirely comfortable with the projection strength.

For now, it's pretty dismal and boring. Despite the RED uptrend since 2017, we shall not be aghast to see it reverse to the 20p mark prior to any miracle bounces. Below 20p would be a bad thing, making 16p and below painfully possible.

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
