General Dynamics Stock Achieves Relative Strength Rating of 80 or higher

On Tuesday, General Dynamics (GD) stock received an upgrade to its Relative Strength (RS) Rating, moving from 80 to 84. This exclusive rating from Investor’s Business Daily measures market leadership on a scale of 1 (worst) to 99 (best). The RS Rating shows how a stock’s price performance over the past 52 weeks compares to all other stocks in the database.

After surpassing a buy point of 245.06 in a first-stage saucer with handle pattern, General Dynamics stock is now considered extended and outside of the buy range. However, investors should monitor if the aerospace stock 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.

General Dynamics experienced an increase in both earnings and sales growth in the last quarter, with EPS rising from -7% to 2% and revenue increasing from 6% to 8%. The upcoming quarterly results are scheduled for release around April 24th. GD holds the No. 22 rank among its peers in the Aerospace/Defense industry group, with Embraer ADR (ERJ), FTAI Aviation (FTAI), and Howmet Aerospace (HWM) being among the top five highly rated stocks in the group.
