The shares have had a great run over the last few years but we can see some danger signs up here. Firstly, since peaking in June, Fisher and Paykel Healthcare (FPH) has been sold down fairly quickly (circled). The volume has also been fairly large on the way down. This means that there is some strength in the selling. The other point to note is the volume during the last rally. During the recent rally that started at the beginning of this year, the volume was light. This means a lack of conviction in the buying. All of this tells me that if the selling continues in FPH, then it won’t take much for the price to crumble and we could see it back to where it started the year near $8.
