Technical View

MBN declined by 92% between May 2008 and January 2009. It then rallied sharply (+420%) to the September 2009 high, before declining by 55% into late October 2010.

Volume and momentum indicators suggest that the stock has been basing since late August, and the recent break above the April downtrend has resulted in a sharp move to the upside.

In Monday trading price has pushed above the September and October highs, completing a small base formation. The next resistance is the 200DMA which currently sits at $2.05. Given the strong gains over the past few days, this resistance could curb upside potential in the near term; but from a longer-term perspective the stock is positive.

A move to test the September 2009 downtrend is likely over the next few months; this gives upside potential to approximately $2.36.

MBN is rated as a Speculative Buy.

The stop-loss level is $1.63.
