Will Investors Notice Exciting Sign On WestRock's Chart?

By Benzinga Insights

If history is any guide, there may be good fortune ahead for shares of WestRock (NYSE:WRK). A so-called "golden cross" has formed on its chart and, not surprisingly, this could be bullish for the stock.

What To Know: Many traders use moving average crossover systems to make their decisions.

When a shorter-term average price crosses above a longer-term average price, it could mean the stock is trending higher. If the short-term average price crosses below the long-term average price, it means the trend is lower.

Why It's Important: The 50-day and the 200-day simple moving averages are commonly used.

The golden cross occurs when the 50-day crosses above the 200-day. This could mean the long-term trend is changing.

That just happened with WestRock, which is trading around $51.82 at publication time.

Remember: Seasoned investors don't blindly trade Golden Crosses.

Instead, they use it as a signal to start looking for long positions based on other factors, like price levels and company fundamentals & events.

For seasoned investors, this is just a sign that it might be time to start considering possible long positions.

With that in mind, take a look at WestRock's past and upcoming earnings expectations:

Quarter Q2 2022 Q1 2022 Q4 2021 Q3 2021
EPS Estimate 1.01 0.64 1.15 0.96
EPS Actual 1.17 0.65 1.23 1
Revenue Estimate 5.07B 4.95B 5.03B 4.71B
Revenue Actual 5.38B 4.95B 5.09B 4.82B
