Philip Morris technical comments before earnings news, topping pattern underway

The stock has been in a downtrend since mid-September of this year, with price now just above the $95 area. A breakdown below $95 would confirm a major topping process in the shares evident on a 1-year daily chart on a closing price basis. If the news is a negative surprise, support levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $92.87, the $90 area, and $88.60. The 52-week low is at $83.27. If the news is instead a positive surprise, a move up in price above $98 would turn the trend to neutral from bearish. A move above the $100 area would be a technical positive, with next resistance at $104.20 which is the 52-week high.

Philip Morris should be bought ahead of Investor Day, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that Philip Morris' upcoming Investor Day could be a positive catalyst for the stock.

The firm adds that the company could reinstate its share buyback program "sooner rather than later," and it continues to view the company as the best tobacco name. It keeps a $114-$116 price target and Outperform rating.
