Our target potential upside is almost 9% to 28% in the next 4-6 months.

  • Entry at $64.20: For a risk of $3.20, our first target reward is $5.80 and the second target reward is $15.80. This is a 1:2 and 1:5 risk-reward trade.

Overall, this trade offers nearly 2x to 13x more potential upside than downside.

Risks to ConsiderThe stock may reverse its overall trend if it breaks down with high volume from the falling wedge pattern. The sell-off of the stock could also be triggered in case of any negative news, overall weakness in the market, or any regulatory changes in the sector.
