SPH (T39): BREAKOUT
Commentary:
STI has reached a new 2017 high today, currently trading at 3,161.74 (at point of writing). The bullish momentum may be supported by the stablising global economic conditions.

Investors may consider defensive income stocks to gain exposure to the bullish momentum, as such stocks provides dividend support if prices fall back. One stock investors can consider is SPH (T39). 

 
Technical Observation:
The stock has been in the mark down phase since mid 2014. Early this year, the mark down halted at S$3.45 amid lower revenue and earnings. This may suggest that the stock's mark down phase has potentially ended and accumulation phase taking place.

SPH broke out this morning above the S$3.53 range high. This may suggest that the stock is looking to mark up from current price towards 1st Target: S$3.62, Mark Down Channel Upper Band and potentially 2nd Target: S$3.72, 38.2% retracement from previous high, S$4.15. Stop lost at S$3.445, below low of accumulation phase.
