APA About to Make a Run for It

Apache Corp. (NYSE: APA ) - This large U.S. independent exploration and production driller has been in a bull market since August 2009. But this year, APA has been consolidating its move from $90 before making another run at new highs. The stock has a history of consolidations just under its 20-day and 50-day moving averages where it is now.

The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) indicator issued a strong buy signal last week and, with the U.S. dollar showing weakness, APA could pop through the near-term resistance and make a run to the top of the trading channel at $140.

S&P has a "five-star strong buy" on APA with a 12-month target of $160, but traders will likely see big gains in a much shorter time frame.
