As for recommendations, Investtech points at the Norwegian holding company Copeinca (COP):
“Copeinca has broken the upward trend, which initially indicates a weaker rise rate. The stock has a potential head-and-shoulder formation under development. Established breaches under the support at NOK 47.08, preferably on increasing volume, signaling further decline. Stock has broken through resistance at about NOK 47,00. Further expansion is thus indicated, and there is now support at NOK 47,00 in case of a responses back. The volume has previously been high around price peaks and low around the price bottoms. Volume balance is also positive, which weakens the trend break. The stock is considered overall technical positive on medium term,” the analysts writes.
