Update 3/22/2018: EL reversed the day after I entered, and on the second day gave a downtrend signal on the Fisher Transform. I exited for a loss.
My shares position declined by 1.5% over the two-day holding period for a -264% annual rate.
I have entered a long shares position on EL at a debit of $147.68 per share.
I made the decision to enter the trade in my account based on a high expectation of a positive earnings surprise, a bullish Zacks rank, an uptrend signal on the daily Fisher Transform and an Elliott wave count that shows, somewhat ambiguously, that EL in an uptrend. The rise from 2016 is poorly differentiated, but it appears to me to be in a 5th wave up in the rise since April 2017.
EL publishes earnings May 2 before the opening bell.
