The recent performance of the stock is another area that can tell traders how to proceed. WEN is presenting an interesting case. This can be seen in the Forward P/E ratio, which currently stands at 34.42. Moreover, the company’s enterprise value has gone from $8.40B to $6.73B quarter-over-quarter. Obviously, the company is heading in the wrong direction, but there are still opportunities for growth in the sector.

Looking at popular technical indicators, the company’s 5-day moving average is 23.53 compared to the 50-day moving average of 21.85. So, we are clearly seeing an upward trajectory here.
The Relative Strength Index or RSI is an indicator ranging between 0 and 100 that traders use to determine if a stock is “overbought” or “oversold.” A strong uptrend tending to reach into the “overbought” status is above 70, while a downward trend will stay around the 30 mark. WEN currently holds a 9-day RSI of 73.75%, while 100-day RSI stands at 53.59%.
Another indicator we believe is worth keeping tabs on is the Moving Average Convergence Divergence or MACD. Similar to the concept of the Force Index — on the basis of price momentum — the MACD gives traders a tool to measure the turning point of a stock even during rapid fluctuations in price. Buy and sell signals are determined by a stock’s relation to the zero line, so if a stock is above a zero line for many weeks it might be a “buy.” On the other hand, if a stock is below the zero line consistently, it might be one to stay away from. Also, if the MACD line reaches a peak and dips, its momentum may be waning. WEN’s 9-day MACD is 0.55 and the company’s 100-day MACD stands at 1.67.
Another area that is important to analyze is insider moves and majority shareholders. While this is not always an error-free way to tell what the future holds for a stock, you can maybe gather important information from reading the tea leaves about who is buying and selling.
