Technically, a bullish pin bar emerged at the $38 support after the quarterly earnings. The pin bar is taking the price higher. We project the next level that the stock will hit will be $42. However, further gains are expected in line with the momentum and strong fundamentals. We believe investors should buy the stock now and hold up to $46.50 resistance or higher.
PLAY is a buy at the current level as bullish signals and strong momentum emerge. Investors can hold the stock up to $46.50. The stock will face some resistance at $42.10, but we see it rising past the level.
