Signal Update :Tomorrow.
Our system’s recommendation today is to SELL. The BEARISH HANGING MAN pattern finally received a confirmation because the prices crossed below the confirmation level which was at 33,0250, and our valid average selling price stands now at 32,2100. The previous BUY recommendation was issued on 29/08/2014, 6 days ago, when the stock price was 31,5250. Since then AVAV has risen by +2,17%.
We may be at a market top or at the start of a correction. The market ran out of steam and the traders are now more in agreement about the bearishness. The evidence is strong enough to prompt the closing of long positions. Today’s candlestick has a black body and its close is below the confirmation level. The bearish pattern that was previously identified is finally confirmed and a SELL signal is generated. You still have time to follow the signal and then you may start checking other securities for a bullish bet.

The future sales and earnings of course.
Plus it has two growth area products .
As I said before, nothing of a surprise. I was not thrilled with their tone in the conference call. It sounded like they were trying to hide something, either good (because secret projects), or bad. I have exited out of everything this morning -- not sure why it jumped at the open, but thanks to whoever bought it. I still like the company but if I can get cheaper, why not. I want to buy between 25 and below all the way where I started at 19 area if I could. This is not a host stock, but a something with a good mote.
Revenue up. Earnings down due to increased R&D for commercial UAS. That is exactly what investors should want to hear. I'll be buying more when bottom is in.
