Notable Stocks Forming Death/Golden Crosses for 12/24: (AAPL) (MO) (BA) (RIMM)

December 24, 2012 11:45 AM EST
The following is a list of stocks showing the famed "death cross," or when a shorter-term moving average crosses and moves below a longer-term one. (We'll be doing a "golden cross," too, which is the reverse indicator.) Charts are viewed on a one-year time frame and we're using 50- and 200-day SMA as measures.

Finally, the crosses don't happen often, so we're just going by stocks that have made the move recently.

Showing a death cross include:

* Apple, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) - moved below on December 7th. Shares are down 5 percent since.

* Express Scripts (Nasdaq: ESRX) - made the cross on December 19th. Shares are about 0.8 percent lower over the last few sessions.

* Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) - crossed under in early November and the gap between the 50- and 200-day SMA has been widening since.

* Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) - moved below on December 4th. Down 1.2 percent since.

* Altria (NYSE: MO) - also moved below around December 4th. Altria is down 4.1 percent following the shift.

Stocks forming a "golden cross":

* Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM) - moved above way back on December 19th after powering higher for a few months.

* Nokia Oyj (NYSE: NOK) - crossed above on December 20th. Shares of Nokia have more than doubled since July, when the stock traded near $1.60 or so.

* Green Mountain (Nasdaq: GMCR) - moved above last Friday. Shares rose above the key $30 resistance level recently following quarterly results.

* Peabody (NYSE: BTU) - moved above just about December 11th. The coal segment has been pressured, but it appears that Peabody is finding some traction for now. There's definitely an upward trend going on.

* Boeing (NYSE: BA) - saw the cross on December 17th. Boeing has been strong above the $74 level, a point which investors hope provides some support as Boeing looks to improved productivity and get airplanes into the hands of customers sooner.
