Moving Average Chart for DLA

DLA has rallied 18.8% over the past four weeks, and the company is a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) at the moment. This combination suggests DLA could be on the verge of another move higher.

The bullish case solidifies once investors consider DLA's positive earnings estimate revisions. No estimate has gone lower in the past two months for the current fiscal year, compared to 1 higher, while the consensus estimate has increased too.

Investors should think about putting DLA on their watchlist given the ultra-important technical indicator and positive move in earnings estimate revisions.
