Acuity Brands (AYI): Moving Average Crossover Alert

Are you a technical investor? If so, it may be time to consider Acuity Brands, Inc. AYI for your portfolio. The company just saw its 50 Day Moving Average breakout above its 200 Day Simple moving average, a trend that could indicate some bullishness in the future for AYI.

This trend may have already begun, as shares of AYI have moved by higher by 14.9% in just the past month. Plus, AYI has earned itself a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), so there is plenty of reason to believe that the run for Acuity Brands has plenty of life left. 

More bullishness may especially be the case when investors consider what has been happening for AYI on the earnings estimate revision front lately. No estimate has gone lower in the past two months, compared to 1 higher, while the consensus estimate has also moved higher too.

So given this move in estimates, and the positive technical factors, investors may want to watch this breakout candidate closely for more gains in the near future.
