After consolidating with small candles over the past two months, the Straits Times Index (STI) moved down with big candles in the past few days. The market is now bearish and many stocks have suffered severe sell-down.

Asia-Pacific Strategic Investments (AP Strategic), however, is one of those few stocks that may still be in an uptrend. After consolidating at the support at around $0.20, the counter moved up to $0.35 exhibiting a sign of strength. In addition, both the MACD historgram and the Moving Averages are indicating an uptrend. Also, the pull back in the past few days was weak and slow.

One may consider buying on weakness during a pull back, and expect the uptrend to resume after consolidation. As the STI is quite bearish, it is advisable to set the entry price a bit low and stop loss relative wide to avoid potential wipe out.

From the fundamental perspective, the company announced its 1Q14 financial results on 11 November with it still mired in the red. Nonetheless, following the announcement, its share price did not drop much indicating that the market had accepted its current negative financial performance.
