Thai Beverage Public Company’s stock performance (ThaiBev) has been very strong in the month of September. Its price went up and broke above the downward trendline, which also acted as a resistance, when the Straits Times Index (STI) was going up. Currently, the moving averages (MAs) are heading North already.

If it is a false breakout, the stock should be subjected to a severe pull back after the rally. However, that did not happen. It is a sign of strength, particularly when STI had a pull back during the past few days. It indicates that the sellers are weak and the stock is likely to remain in its uptrend momentum. After the small range consolidation for the past six to seven trading days, if it breaks above the recent high, the uptrend is likely to resume and have more upside potential. Fundamentally, the recent half year report on 14 August showed that ThaiBev’s revenue and income dropped slightly.

Nonetheless, the stock does not carry a high risk in terms of fundamental perspective. One may consider buying on breakout from the recent high and set the stop loss right below the recent low. The risk reward ratio makes it a good setup to consider.
