Wesco International (WCC) is looking like an interesting pick from a technical perspective, as the company reached a key level of support. Recently, WCC crossed above the 20-day moving average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.
The 20-day simple moving average is a well-liked trading tool because it provides a look back at a stock's price over a 20-day period. Additionally, short-term traders find this SMA very beneficial, as it smooths out short-term price trends and shows more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.
Like other SMAs, if a stock's price is moving above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive. When the price falls below the moving average, it can signal a downward trend.
Over the past four weeks, WCC has gained 12.2%. The company is currently ranked a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), another strong indication the stock could move even higher.
The bullish case only gets stronger once investors take into account WCC's positive earnings estimate revisions. There have been 3 revisions higher for the current fiscal year compared to none lower, and the consensus estimate has moved up as well.
Investors should think about putting WCC on their watchlist given the ultra-important technical indicator and positive move in earnings estimate revisions.
