Data Communications Management Corp. (DCM:TSX; DCMDF:OTCQX) is suspected to have formed an intermediate base pattern in recent weeks toward the lower boundary of a large trading range, and with results due to be released today after the close, it is thought likely that once they are it will at least make a run towards the top of the trading range, which would result in good percentage gains from here.
Let’s start by looking at a longer-term three-year chart on which we see that a fine large Cup and Handle base formed from late 2019 through early 2021.
Upon breaking out from this base it raced higher briefly before settling into the large trading range shown that has continued up to the present.
As it retreated back across the range for the second time from its March high its Accumulation line has remained buoyant and at a high level, which is a positive sign that suggests it has just made an intermediate base above the support towards the bottom of the range from which it should soon advance.
On the six-month chart we can see in much more detail the retreat from the March high and how it appears to have marked out a Cup pattern above the support since early–mid June.
After starting to advance again this month there was a sudden flurry of activity early today, which was no doubt due to the conference call and webcast, although since this has so far been been on relatively light volume it doesn’t mean much and is the result of jockeying ahead of the release of the second quarter results after the close today.
With the technical factors that we have reviewed suggesting a high probability of a significant rally once results are released, Data Communications Management is rated an Immediate Speculative Buy today ahead of them. The stock is very thinly traded on the US OTC market where limit orders should always be employed.
