Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "J.C. Penney Company, Inc. Holding Company" (JCP)?

JCP is in a long term downtrend and it has traded about 63% of the time below the 200 day moving average in the last 52 weeks on daily average volume of 14.9M shares changing hands. For the medium term, the 50 day moving average is generally in a trading range with a bearish downward bias. The 20 day moving average is however displaying very good strength in JCP. The concern however of the weak 200 and 50 SMAs might make JCP susceptible to some profit taking. Objectively, the long term trend is still down and traders will generally sell into rallies. Until the 200 SMA, which is currently at 8.41, is convincingly taken out, expect to have quite a lot of resistance above from this point.

The analyst consensus estimates for the 1 year price target for this stock is $8.03* (*source: Yahoo Finance).
