Alongside the Technical Rating, ChartMill assigns a Setup Rating to evaluate the consolidation level of a stock. This rating, ranging from 0 to 10, is updated daily and considers various short-term technical indicators. The current setup rating for NYSE:UNM is 9:

Besides having an excellent technical rating, UNM also presents a decent setup pattern. We see reduced volatility while prices have been consolidating in the most recent period. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 48.90. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point.
