Ellington Financial LLC Stock Getting Overbought
By Dividend Channel Staff, Friday, January 6, 3:59 PM ET
In trading on Friday, shares of Ellington Financial LLC (NYSE:EFC) entered into overbought territory, changing hands as high as $18.15 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 Ellington Financial LLC, the RSI reading has hit 74.2 — by comparison, the universe of dividend stocks covered by Dividend Channel currently has an average RSI of 57.6.
Investors could look at EFC's 74.2 reading as a sign that the recent heavy buying is in the process of winding down, which could bring a pullback in the stock. The chart below shows the one year performance of EFC shares:
Looking at the chart above, EFC's low point in its 52 week range is $15.76 per share, with $25.09 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $18.09.
