Cerner Is Almost Back in Range

This health care stock is near a pullback that'll make it a buy again

By Sam Collins, InvestorPlace Chief Technical Analyst

Cerner (NASDAQ:CERN), a leading supplier of health-care information technology, is in a powerful bull channel that began in November 2010. We recommended it on Oct. 21 at about $66 with a target of $75. The stock made it to over $78 in March and then ran to a high of over $84 after crushing analysts’ first-quarter estimates.

Revenues in Q1 rose 30%, net income was up 37.4% and analysts responded by raising their target to $92 from $82. Technically, the stock turned away from the top of its bull channel, and so a pullback to $75 or under is where we’d like to buy CERN.

Our target is still at $95.
