Payin' Up At The Pump

You had picked Chevron to watch several weeks ago--what do you think of CHV as a split candidate now?


Chevron (NYSE:CHV) has been moving higher in waves. It is up over 14% so far, but now looks as if it is ready to head lower. The stock has encountered strong resistance at $98 over the last month. CHV has tested this level three times and has subsequently retraced 50% (on average) each time after being turned back. In addition, its MACD is close to issuing a sell signal.

Even though I feel that CHV has run its course for now, it is still a good split candidate. Chevron last split its shares in June of 1994 at $90.75. As you can see, we are well within historical split range. CHV next reports earnings unofficially on 07/25/01, so we will be monitoring this event for a 2:1 split announcement, provided CHV can continue to hover around $90 until then.

Good Luck and Have a Profitable Trading Day
