Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Neenah Paper, Inc." (NP)?

NP is trading below its 200 day moving average and objectively, many will consider the long term trend to be down. Care must however be taken with this view as in its last 52 week trading history, it is noted that NP has been range bound with a slight upward bias, having traded above the 200 SMA about 60% of the time. The 50 day moving average indicates a medium term trading range with a bullish upside inclination. The 20 day moving average is however on a slight bearish bias, otherwise, it is also indicating range bound trading. Objectively, as long as NP is trading below its 200 SMA, rallies will be sold into and traders can expect a lot of resistance near the 200 SMA currently at 79.68. Technically there are too many uncertainties to recommend a buy on this stock at this moment.
