Watch Grace this week

Grace Kennedy could move up this week.

The main stocks of interest this week are Grace Kennedy, Stationery and Office Supplies, CAC 2000, NCB Financial, Caribbean Cream, Main Event, Wisynco and Berger Paints, most of these have limited supplies.
With the average PE of the market now exceeding a comfortable 15 times 2018 earnings and rising, stocks valued less than the market average, could see increased interest as investors look for bargains.
Bulls continue to push the Jamaican stock market, to new heights last week as low interest rates and good profits help push investors into stocks against the back ground of limited selling.
The supply of several of the main market stocks are extremely scarce and that is working in market favour to move much higher, before too long. There are several stocks priced well below the market’s average and that could encourage buying interest in them as well.
NCB Financial went sideways for around two weeks but bids started building close to the closing prices last week and that could help it move higher this week.
Grace Kennedy seems ready to break out of the $60 range as there is no supply on offer now. Caribbean Cement

keeps trading between $46 and $50, but there appears no real desire to move the price forward. Kingston Wharves has always had limited supply, so it could move higher going forward. Supply of JMMB Group have dried up and that could create the environment for the price to move higher.
An overall view of stocks indicates that the main market continues to be steered higher by an upward sloping support line as well the 45 and 125 day moving averages, lending support just below, but the 400,000 points resistance could likely stall the rally in the main market for a while. The Junior Market that traded recently at an all-time high, is being steered by an upward rising long-term support line and a golden cross. The golden cross is a very strong bullish long-term signal.
