Panera Bread shows relatively strong fundamentals and is coming back to attractive price.
In the recent months, the earnings estimates for the next year are regularly revised upward by analysts. With an EPS estimated at USD 7.05 for this year and USD 8.1 for the next year, Panera Bread is currently paid 22.02 and 19.15 times the results.
In the mid-term, the trend is neutral. The stock is trading within a range between USD 155 and USD 164.2. Panera Bread is not likely to continue its downtrend because it is near to the strong USD 152/155 support area, the lower bound of the trading range.
It seems opportune to take a long position at the current price. A confirmation of this pattern would enable the security to reach the USD 164.2 resistance. A stop loss will be set at USD 151.7.
