Traders Take Note: Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation (NYSE:ANH) Stock Drops, Weakness in Technical Momentum
(ANH Price of Stock at Publication: $4.89)
Take Note: Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation (NYSE:ANH) has hit some technical weakness in its momentum, and while it has not broken down all the way through support -- watch the key levels that we discuss below and further, watch the stochastics and technical oscillators for any kind of momentum gaps.
The company has a two bull momentum rating which indicates weakness -- but not a full scale breakdown. There can be a contrarian urge to enter a new long position as the stock drops, but as of this moment, the stock price is moving lower and may yet weaken further. If a reversal becomes apparent, waiting for that strength in the technicals may be more prudent than jumping in as the stock drops.
ANH is down -11.7% over the last three months and down -19.8% over the last six months. The stock has returned -11.7% over the last year. The current stock price is $4.89.
