Upon the conclusion of Dunlop\'s secondary offering on February 2, 2007, the companyÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¾ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢s stock price experienced a sharp ascend gaining N4.78k, or 115% through February 26, 2007. However, after the meteoric rise, the stock began a slow but severe decline loosing N6.44k, or 72% during the next 9 months.
Subsequently, the stock began a slow recovery breaking through its 20 day cumulative simple moving average (CSMA) of N2.76k on November 6, 2007, and through its 50 day CSMA of N3.02k on November 11, 2007. This trading pattern was an indication of strong relative strength.
However, on November 15, 2007, after 20 days of positive up trend, the stock closed under its 20 day CSMA indicating a sign of short-term weakness. As at the close of trading on December 12, 2007, the stock was below its 10 day and 20 day CSMA of N3.29k and N3.38k respectively. The only encouraging indication is that the stock is above its flat 50 day CSMA of N3.07k. There appears to be turbulence ahead, because the 20 day CSMA is beginning to trend down. Technically, if the stock slips under the 50 day CSMA, it might be time for short-term holders of the stock to consider selling.
