Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "PDL BioPharma, Inc." (PDLI)?

PDLI is in a very strong downtrend. For the last 52 weeks, PDLI has maintained to stay firmly below the 200 day moving average for 93% of the time. Rallies will be sold into until the downtrend reverses. The medium term trend for PDLI is also extremely bearish and weak, having traded almost 91% of the time below the 50 day moving average. The 20 day moving average is also showing some signs of weakness as PDLI has been trading below its 20 SMA for 80% of the time in the last 8 weeks. As PDLI is in a strong downtrend characterized by the 200 SMA, currently at 6.91, 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 PDLI may get a short term oversold bounce around here.
