Fly Like an Eagle?

by | Aug 31, 2023

With all the talk about tech and AI, it’s easy to overlook some very hot stocks in some very hot sectors.

One of the top 20 hottest groups in the world is…the building sector?

Crazy, but true.

Specifically, EXP (Eagle Materials) has been on a great run in recent months.

See the chart here:

It’s gone from $143 to $190 in 2023 and has risen a lot more since it formed a double bottom back in September of ‘22. 

Recently it’s taken a small break, going sideways and forming a tight little channel.

But it’s above the long-term simple moving average and a break above $194.05 could lead to a nice run.

Especially if September isn’t as bearish as August was.

We’ll keep it on our radar.

We’ll keep an eye on it.


Happy trading,
