SM Energy Co. (SM) Shares Enter Oversold Territory
By Energy Stock Channel Staff, Monday, October 3, 4:10 PM ET
In trading on Monday, shares of SM Energy Co. (NYSE:SM) entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $57.22 per share. We define oversold territory using the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which is a technical analysis indicator used to measure momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.
In the case of SM Energy Co., the RSI reading has hit 29.0 — by comparison, the universe of energy stocks covered by Energy Stock Channel currently has an average RSI of 35.8, the RSI of WTI Crude Oil is at 38.7, and the RSI of Henry Hub Natural Gas is presently 35.2.
A bullish investor could look at SM's 29.0 reading as a sign that the recent heavy selling is in the process of exhausting itself, and begin to look for entry point opportunities on the buy side.
Looking at a chart of one year performance (below), SM's low point in its 52 week range is $37.30 per share, with $85.55 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $57.66. SM Energy Co. shares are currently trading off about 4.8% on the day.
According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, SM makes up 3.09% of the First Trust ISE-Revere Natural Gas Index Fund ETF (AMEX:FCG) which is trading relatively unchanged on the day Monday.
