Stock to Sell #3 – Genuine Parts (GPC)

Genuine Parts (NYSE:GPC), a leading distributor of wholesale automotive parts, is struggling to maintain its technical pattern. A double-top appears to be forming and is reinforced by the falloff in volume at just above $66. 

The company recently reported slightly better-than-expected earnings, but the stock failed to have a follow-through in price. If it does not make a new high soon, GPC could break support at its 50-day moving average and plunge to around $58.
