SAGA (LSE:SAGA) It's funny how customs differ. In England, better 100 years and you get a note from Her Majesty. In Scotland, better 50 years and (as Mrs T&T discovered last week) you immediately get a note from the Scottish Govt asking you to pooh on it. Additionally, folk like Saga start to bombard you with "offers".
Kidding aside, a Bowel Cancer testing kit genuinely beat mailings from the folks who make a living from an ageing population and the innocent looking envelope enjoys pride of place in the loo, unused, while Mrs T&T gathers courage to read the instructions. But it also reminded us to update our SAGA view as we'd lost interest in it by 2015 due to the share price' tendency to behave as if it were using a Zimmer frame.
We've had a target price of 230p for two years and the price would need limp below 187p to dash any residual optimism. Near term, it appears anything above 212p should prince a useless 215p into view. Critically though, if 215p is bettered it should prove difficult for the share to avoid 230p and this is where it all gets fascinating.
The concept of 230p presents a new "All Time High" for the price, boosting the company into a region with a distant 256p twinkling in the distance. The price requires break RED (currently 187p) to scupper this outlook.
|Time Issued||Market||Price At Issue||Short Entry||Fast Exit||Slow Exit||Stop||Long Entry||Fast Exit||Slow Exit||Stop||Prior|
|10:04:09PM||GBPUSD /100.||Short to 128.65|
SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. 'CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.
Our commentary is in two sections. Immediately below are today's updated comments. If our commentary remains valid, the share can be found in the bottom section which has a RED heading. Hopefully, this will mean you no longer need to flip back through previous reports. HYPERLINKS DISABLED IN THIS VERSION
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 www.trendsandtargets.com.
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.
