The gains caused PPG Industries stock to trade 7.1% above its 100-day moving average price of $104.00, which indicates the positive trend in the stock. However, investors should be careful. The company’s 14-day relative strength index is at 70, which indicates that the stock has temporarily moved into an “overbought” position. There could be some sell-off in the near term.
