Well below 50-day moving average

ONEOK (OKE) is currently trading 57% below its 50-day moving average and 92% below its 200-day moving average. ONEOK has generally been trading below its 50-day moving average since mid-2014 when energy prices began falling.

The stock temporarily traded above its 50-day moving average from February to May 2015 when oil prices recovered a bit. OKE fell below the 50-day moving average again in May when it announced a 25% year-over-year decline in its 1Q15 cash flow available for dividends.

ONEOK recovered a bit along with crude oil prices in the first week of October 2015. Since then, the stock has continued to trade below its 50-day moving average. Despite a 2% increase in quarterly dividends compared to 2Q15 and a 26% year-over-year increase in cash flow available for dividends, OKE’s 3Q15 results could not revive its stock. The above graph shows ONEOK’s stock price, along with the 50-day and 200-day moving averages.
