Party City Holdco Inc. PRTY has moved higher as of late, but there could definitely be trouble on the horizon for this company. That is because PRTY is now in overbought territory with an RSI value of 85.68.
What is RSI?
RSI stands for ‘Relative Strength Index’ and it is a popular indicator used by technically focused investors. It compares the average of gains in days that closed up to the average of losses in days that closed down; readings above 70 suggest an asset is overbought, while an RSI below 30 suggests undervalued conditions are present.
Yet PRTY’s high RSI value isn’t the only reason for investors to be concerned, as there has been some decidedly negative earnings estimate revisions Party City Holdco’s stock as of late. This is especially true when investors dive into some of these revisions in order to get a better picture of PRTY’s prospects for the near term.
Over the past one month, investors have witnessed 1 earnings estimate revision lower compared to none higher for the current year. The consensus estimate for PRTY’s has also been on a downward trend over the same time period too, as the estimates have fallen 19.2% over the last two months.
If this wasn’t enough, Party City Holdco also has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) which puts it into unfortunate company among its peers. So, given all of these factors, investors may want to consider exiting this stock now before it falls back to Earth.
