Best Buy Stock Sees Bearish Crossovers Post Earnings.

Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE:BBY) reported earnings that beat estimates and raised its revenue guidance yesterday. However, CEO Hubert Joly's word of caution that same-store sales numbers, which topped estimates, did not represent a "new normal," sent the stock crashing. The stock crashed by a massive 12% by the end of the day and now looks set for a further decline in the coming days. Best Buy stock fell below multiple moving averages, including the 20 day Simple Moving Average (SMA), 50 day SMA and its 100 day SMA. The stock had never breached the 100 day SMA in the last 6 months, and the bearish crossover yesterday backed by very strong volumes suggests that the outlook is now very negative.

The stock also saw its Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) making a bearish crossover as it fell below the signal line. And while BBY stock has entered oversold territory, touching the lower Bollinger Band, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) does not concur. The current RSI reading, at about 36, is still higher, albeit close to the oversold threshold of 30. As things stand, Best Buy shares look poised to head lower in the coming days.
