Krispy Kreme Donuts (KKD) has been in a multi-year consolidation and is finally getting some frosting for new highs.
On November 20, 2012, KKD gapped up on earning guidance. KKD pushed through prior supply over $8.75. If KKD can maintain this gap up, it should start to lift into higher prices.
Any price move maintained over $9.50 is considered bullish. KKD may try to revisit its previous highs around $10.00 and even into $13.00.
Two possible entry ideas:
1) Watch for a pullback into daily demand at $8.50. Keep a tight stop under $8.00 and look for it to build demand to climb over $9.50.
2) Buy any price action over $9.50. Look for targets into $10.00 and then $13.00.
