Sealed Air Corporation (SEE) investment:

The following are suggestions from Beacon College:

Since its listing in 1998, SEE’s stock price has been tepid, and has been repeatedly blocked by the resistance of the historical high of $34 formed in the initial stage of the listing.

Sealed Air MK

In August 2014, the stock successfully broke through the resistance of the platform to open up the upside, and the growth rate began to accelerate. The stock has risen +51% in the past year, and it ranks in the top 5% of the S&P 500 constituent stocks.

Especially recently, a number of hedge funds have aggressively increased their holdings in packaging industry stocks, causing stocks in the same sector to rise sharply. SEE’s stock price is constantly setting new record highs.

Operation strategy:

From a short-term technical perspective (day k), SEE stock price can be described as step by step, and the trend is very stable. What’s interesting is that the stock seems to fall back and consolidate for a period of time every time it rises by $5. Recently, after breaking through the previous platform, the stock has reached the target of +$5 near $53. If the above rules can continue, it means that the recent consolidation of the stock may retreat to the $48-$50 range again, thereby providing long-term investors with a chance to re-enter the market.

Specific operation strategy:

Long-term buying range: $48-$50 area buying method: callback buying

Initial stop loss: $47.9 Upside first target: $53

Risk-reward ratio: 1:3 Upside second target: $58

The stock is suitable for long-term investors, and price is a key factor for success, so you need to wait patiently for the stock price to fall to the above-mentioned area before entering the market. The stock is still in the stage of slowly rising, the long-term target should be much higher than the above-mentioned second target.
