Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "HCP, Inc." (HCP)?

HCP is in a very strong downtrend. For the last 52 weeks, HCP has maintained to stay firmly below the 200 day moving average for 90% of the time. Rallies will be sold into until the downtrend reverses. The medium term trend for HCP is also extremely bearish and weak, having traded almost 90% of the time below the 50 day moving average. The 20 day moving average is also showing some signs of weakness as HCP has been trading below its 20 SMA for 70% of the time in the last 8 weeks. As HCP is in a strong downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 30.13, the most likely scenario is that rallies will be sold into until the 200 SMA is convincingly taken out. Technically, there is very little reason to recommend a buy on this counter, although HCP may get a short term oversold bounce around here.
