After reaching an important support level, Posco (PKX) could be a good stock pick from a technical perspective. PKX surpassed resistance at the 50-day moving average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.

The 50-day simple moving average, which is one of three major moving averages, is widely used by traders and analysts to establish support and resistance levels for a range of securities. Because it's the first sign of an up or down trend, the 50-day is considered to be more important.

The bullish case only gets stronger once investors take into account PKX's positive earnings estimate revisions. There have been 1 higher compared to none lower for the current fiscal year, and the consensus estimate has moved up as well.

Investors may want to watch PKX for more gains in the near future given the company's key technical level and positive earnings estimate revisions.
