In trading on Wednesday, shares of Lowe's Companies Inc (NYSE:LOW) entered into overbought territory, changing hands as high as $23.88 per share. We define overbought 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 overbought if the RSI reading rises above 70.

In the case of Lowe's Companies Inc, the RSI reading has hit 70.9 by comparison, the universe of dividend stocks covered by Dividend Channel currently has an average RSI of 57.5.

A bearish investor could look at LOW's 70.9 reading as a sign that the recent heavy buying is in the process of exhausting itself, and shares are due for a pullback. The chart below shows the one year performance of LOW shares:
