This week’s trade comes from the consumer staples sector, food products industry of NASDAQ. The highlights of this stock are more technical than fundamental. Though the P/E, both trailing and forward are respectable and P/S is at a level that is interesting, what caught our attention was the breakout of the massive 22-month consolidation. This tells us that institutional investors are expecting much higher returns over the next 12 months.
