Chesapeake Energy has climbed more than 5% past a 57.09 entry in a first-stage consolidation, meaning it's now out of a proper buy range. Look for the stock to create a new buying opportunity like a three-weeks tight or pullback to the 50-day or 10-week line.
Earnings growth decreased in the company's most recent report from 0% to -93%, but sales rose from -55% to 37%.
The company earns the No. 37 rank among its peers in the Oil&Gas-U.S. Exploration & Production industry group. Cimarex Energy and Diamondback Energy are also among the group's highest-rated stocks.
