Big Pharma Already Knows the Supreme Court Outcome

Recently the decision to buy stocks in the healthcare sector has centered on the small cap bio-pharma companies. With these the technicals play a big role along with the FDA Approval calendar. The whole sector has gained attention of traders. Many of those names are starting to show signs of exhaustion after long runs. But the large cap healthcare stock, names that everyone has in their medicine cabinet are on the verge or break outs on the longer term weekly charts. Do they already know how the Supreme Court ruling will affect them? Take a look at these four behemoths, all over $47 billion in market cap and with at least a 3.90% dividend yield.

Bristol-Myers Squibb, $BMY

Bristol-Myers Squibb, $BMY, is making a third touch at the top rail of an ascending triangle with a strong candle. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is bullish and rising and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator has just crossed positive, both supporting a punch through resistance. The target on a pattern break higher is to 38.10.

Eli Lilly, $LLY

Eli Lilly, $LLY, is testing an expanding wedge higher, after moving over 41 resistance. Many think of this megaphone as a topping pattern but a continuation is possible as well. The target on the continued move higher is to 44.50 and it also has support from the RSI and MACD.

Merck, $MRK

Merck, $MRK, may be the best looking one of the bunch. Breaking a 6 month consolidation higher it has a target of 47 with support from the technicals.

Pfizer, $PFE

Pfizer, $PFE, is breaking a short term resistance at 22.90 but still has a rising wedge resistance higher at 23.30. If it can get over that the target is up to 27.60. The RSI supports more upside while the MACD is not quite on board yet, but heading to a positive cross.
