Hexcel broke out earlier, but has fallen back below the prior 64.03 entry from a flat base . In the scenario where a stock breaks out then falls 7% or more below the entry price, it's considered a failed breakout. If that happens, it's best to wait for a new pattern to form. Also understand that the latest consolidation is a later-stage base, and those involve more risk.

The company saw both earnings and sales growth rise last quarter. Earnings-per-share increased from -4% to 9%. Revenue rose from -6% to -2%. Keep an eye out for the company's next round of numbers on or around Jan. 25.

The company holds the No. 18 rank among its peers in the Aerospace/Defense industry group. Heico ( HEI ), Teledyne Technologies ( TDY ) and Heico (HEIA) are among the top 5 highly rated stocks within the group.
