Proprietary Indicator Flashes Buy for SXI

Standex International issues CBR buy signal just above bullish support line


Standex International Corp. (NYSE:SXI) — This diversified company manufactures a range of products and services for industrial markets. Zacks rates it as a top-value play, and the stock has a forward P/E ratio of under 11.

In its most recent quarter, the company exceeded analysts’ forecasts by 5.2%. Fiscal year (FY) 2012 earnings were $3.39 versus $2.97 in 2011. FY 2013 earnings are estimated at $3.62 per share. The company will announce FY 2013 Q1 results on Nov. 1, before the market open.

Technically, SXI is in a powerful bull market that began early in 2009. It is resting just above its bullish support line at $43 where it recently flashed a buy signal from our proprietary indicator, the Collins-Bollinger Reversal (CBR), and a stochastic buy. It has resistance at a compound top at $47, but if it breaks the top, look for the stock to run to the mid-$50s.
