Moving Average Crossover Alert: MVC Capital, Inc. (MVC)

Zacks Equity Research
In the latest trading session, Netflix (NFLX) closed at $294.40, marking a +0.11% move from the previous day.

MVC Capital, Inc. MVC could be a stock to avoid from a technical perspective, as the firm is seeing unfavorable trends on the moving average crossover front. Recently, the 50 Day Moving Average for MVC broke out below the 200 Day Simple Moving Average, suggesting short-term bearishness.

This has already started to take place, as the stock has moved lower by 64.7% in the past four weeks. And with the recent moving average crossover, investors have to think that more unfavorable trading is ahead for MVC stock.

If that wasn’t enough, MVC isn’t looking too great from an earnings estimate revision perspective either. It appears as though many analysts have been reducing their earnings expectations for the stock lately, which is usually not a good sign of things to come.

Consider that in the last 30 days, 1 estimate has been reduced, while none has moved higher. Add this in to a similar move lower in the consensus estimate, and there is plenty of reason to be bearish here.

That is why we currently have a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) on this stock and are looking for it to underperform in the weeks ahead. So either avoid this stock or consider jumping ship until the estimates and technical factors turn around for MVC. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
