Cheesecake Factory: Sequence Calling for More Upside

Elliottwave Forecast  |

In today's blog, we will have a look at the latest moves in The Cheesecake Factory CAKE stock.

The company released its first-quarter earnings last week. Revenue came in at $599.48 million, missing the consensus estimate of $602 million. Adjusted earnings per share were $0.62, however, beating the expectations of $0.60, driving the stock to a new high. Below you can see the daily chart of Cheesecake Factory. The stock ended the cycle from the 7/27/18 peak at the 12/28/18 low, with a correction of the cycle above from there.

With the new spike higher after the earnings release, it managed to break above the 2/21/19 peak making it a 5-swings incomplete sequence from its 12/28/18 low, opening up an extension higher. As long as the stock stays above the 6th swing low of $48.21, it should ideally trade higher into the blue box area towards $52.91-$58.19. This coincides with the identical cycle in the world indices.

In the last chart, you can see nicely that the FTSE 100 Index is trading within the same cycle as Cheesecake Factory stock and has an incomplete sequence to the upside based on the "One Market Only" concept. This can also be the first indication that the stock could potentially trade higher as well into its respective equal legs area.
