Trade Ideas SLF

With markets on the retreat in afternoon trading, the level of buying as seen on the Trade Ideas scan was markedly down; 8 picks covered a time span of 31 minutes. Only one pick was able to make it over 20 appearances: Jones Apparel Group (JNY).

The one pick which was making a more regular appearance on the scan this afternoon was Sun Life Financial (SLF) at 16 appearances. It is not a traditional breakout given the current move reversed off resistance from a rising channel, but this could to shape a handle between $42 and $44. Worst case scenario for bulls is a full retracement to rising channel support, somewhere around $40. As for an upside target, look to $51, which is similar to the point-n-figure target of $52 (part of a November 3rd triple top breakout). The stock pays a 2.5% yield.

Sun Life Financial, Inc., a diversified financial services company, provides savings, retirement and pension products, and life and health insurance to individuals and groups in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Asia.
