Will Southwestern Energy Stock Start a New Rally in 2018?

Critical juncture

Currently, Southwestern Energy stock is trading between its 200-day moving average and its 52-week low of $4.90 made in October 2017. To start a new rally, its stock needs to cross above its 200-day moving average. In contrast, if Southwestern Energy loses its 52-week low, a big sell-off might ensue in the stock. In 2017, its stock fell ~48%.

Natural gas is rising

Last week, the strong increase in natural gas (UNG) (UGAZ) prices had a positive impact on Southwestern Energy stock. Natural gas (DGAZ) prices rose for the second week in a row. Natural gas prices rose from $2.66 per MMBtu (million British thermal units) to $2.95 per MMBtu.

Due to higher natural gas (UNG) prices last week, the First Trust Natural gas ETF (FCG) rose ~1.7 %. FCG outperformed the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) last week—SPY fell ~0.2%.
