General Dynamics Stock Achieves Relative Strength Rating of 80 or higher

General Dynamics Stock Upgraded with Exclusive Rating from Investor’s Business Daily: What to Expect in the Future

On Tuesday, General Dynamics (GD) stock received an upgrade to its Relative Strength (RS) Rating from Investor’s Business Daily. This exclusive rating measures market leadership on a scale of 1 (worst) to 99 (best), and the RS Rating shows how a stock’s price performance over the past 52 weeks compares to all other stocks in the database. The aerospace and defense company now holds an RS Rating of 84, up from 80, indicating that it is currently considered extended and outside of the buy range after surpassing a buy point of 245.06 in a first-stage saucer with handle pattern.

Despite this setback, investors should keep an eye on whether General Dynamics forms a new pattern or presents a follow-on buying opportunity such as a three-weeks tight or retracement to the 50-day or 10-week line. Historical data has shown that top-performing stocks typically have an RS Rating of 80 or higher as they begin their biggest climbs.

General Dynamics experienced significant growth in both earnings and sales in the last quarter, with earnings per share rising from -7% to 2%, and revenue increasing from 6% to 8%. The upcoming quarterly results are scheduled to be released around April 24th. In terms of rankings among its peers in the Aerospace/Defense industry group, General Dynamics holds the No. 22 spot, with Embraer ADR (ERJ), FTAI Aviation (FTAI), and Howmet Aerospace (HWM) among the top five highly rated stocks in the group.
