Shares of FAST Now Overbought
By Dividend Channel Staff, Monday, December 5, 11:32 AM ET
In trading on Monday, shares of Fastenal Co. (NASDAQ:FAST) entered into overbought territory, changing hands as high as $42.65 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 Fastenal Co., the RSI reading has hit 71.0 — by comparison, the universe of dividend stocks covered by Dividend Channel currently has an average RSI of 57.3.
Investors could look at FAST's 71.0 reading as a sign that the recent heavy buying is in the process of exhausting itself, which could bring a pullback in the stock. The chart below shows the one year performance of FAST shares:
Looking at the chart above, FAST's low point in its 52 week range is $28.60 per share, with $42.65 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $42.54.
