Mosaic shot to a fresh new high today, continuing the uptrend. While the broader market has been trying to bounce, we can see this stock has been on the move for a while. This beautiful uptrend was hardly interrupted by the recent broad market slide. Today the stock rocketed 10% to resume the push to new highs.
The SCTR has been trending higher over the last year. While the stock was rising, the SCTR was just middle of the pack, but over the last few months the stock has really started to be a top performer by being pinned near the top. The relative strength has been climbing. This is an important characteristic of a winning stock. It is outperforming the $SPX over and over repeatedly. This continued outperformance keeps attracting institutional investors.
While this setup on MOS is nice. Looking across the industry at the major players, both Nutrien and CF Industries are setting up to break out as well.
I like the setup across the industry. It is also nice that the group seems to be setting up for continued outperformance after some mergers. I still have trouble with the overall market setup trying to rebound. The strength of this group suggests it might be able to outperform more broad weakness.
