Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Meritage Corporation" (MTH)?

MTH is in a very strong uptrend. In the last 52 weeks, MTH has been trading above the 200 day moving average for 85% of the time with an average daily volume of 277.1K shares being traded. The 50 day moving average, currently at 46.04, although still maintaining a bullish inclination, is however exhibiting characteristics of a medium term trading range. As the dominant long term trend is still up strongly, the high probability trade is still buying the dips. The 20 day moving average confirms this view as the underlying strength in MTH is still very strong with price maintaining above the 20 SMA for 85% of the time in the last month of trading. Traders however need to be cognizant of the fact that some retracement may set in as many may use the strength in price to lock in profits. Traders who are thinking of going long MTH shares should consider patiently waiting for price to be near the 50 or 200 SMAs, currently at 46.04 and 41.08 respectively.
