Taking everything into account, CNP scores 7 out of 10 in our technical rating. In the last year, CNP was one of the better performers, but we do observe some doubts in the very recent evolution.

  • Looking at the yearly performance, CNP did better than 94% of all other stocks. We also observe that the gains produced by CNP over the past year are nicely spread over this period.
  • CNP is one of the better performing stocks in the Multi-Utilities industry, it outperforms 91% of 34 stocks in the same industry.
  • CNP is currently trading in the upper part of its 52 week range. This is a good signal, certainly because the S&P500 Index is currently trading in the lower part of its 52 week range.
  • The short term trend is negative, but the long term trend is still positive. So although the long term is still positive, this may be a trend turning.
  • Volume is considerably higher in the last couple of days.

Looking at the Setup

Next to the Technical Rating, the Setup Rating of a stock determines to which extend the stock is consolidating. This score also ranges from 0 to 10 and is updated daily. The setup score evaluates various short term technical indicators. For NYSE:CNP this score is currently 8:

Besides having an excellent technical rating, CNP also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately. A pullback is taking place, which may present a nice opportunity for an entry. There is a support zone below the current price at 31.64, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone.

Trading setups like NYSE:CNP

One way to play this would be to wait for the actual breakout to happen and buy when the stock breaks out above the current consolidation zone. A possible place for a stop loss would be below this zone.
