We have been focusing on the restaurant sector lately, as there are signs this group of companies is recovering nicely. Yes, there are stocks that are dreadful and untouchable, like Chipotle, but then there are others that continue to drive higher, like Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen. Stuck in a wide eight point range since the Spring, this stock has bolted higher and followed through on some impressive turnover.
Relative strength shows the power of this stock. After the election meltdown, Popeye’s showed unrelenting bullish price action. The MACD is on a strong buy signal, and because the stock is rallying in the face of volatile markets, that tells us buyers continue to pick it up. The recent move to $60 was on good turnover, and there is a great chance this will move up toward the mid 60’s on the next run.
