Intuit (INTU) — This company provides business and financial management solutions for small businesses, consumers and accounting professionals.
Earnings are expected to increase 11% in fiscal 2014, ended in July, but the stock is currently selling at 20 times estimated earnings in an industry that is only modestly increasing its revenues.
INTU topped out above $77 in mid-January following a run from around $64 in late August. It has broken its near and intermediate support, and the 20-day moving average has crossed the 50-day moving average, signaling a shift to an intermediate downtrend.
Sell INTU short at $72 or higher with an intermediate target of $64. Short-sellers should place a stop-loss order at $75.
Short-selling is a speculative technique and not suitable for all investors. Check with your broker for any special requirements before shorting this stock.
