Greenbrier, The One That Got Away….Or Maybe Not
- Posted by Greg Harmon

I started following Greeenbrier, $GBX, in October as A Hidden Transportation Play. Since then it has had an incredible run higher, up over 250%. The trend still looks strong and the stock continues under accumulation. If you are in the name and have held through this run higher, then congratulations to you!
If not then this may be your opportunity to get involved. The chart above shows the run higher with all of the moving averages going up in parallel. but it also shows the price consolidating under resistance at 67.80 as it is running into the 20 day SMA. The last 3 times the price has touched the 20 day SMA the stock has moved higher. It may not happen this time but this gives you both a trigger and a stop for your trade. An aggressive entry could be to buy it now with a stop just under the 20 day SMA. A more conservative trade would be to wait for a break over that resistance to enter, using the same stop, but obviously a smaller position size to adjust the capital at risk.
