Welcome to Theta Bandits Top Pick Tuesday. We strive to bring you free content, scouring the markets and making plans to get ahead of what we think could be new potential winners for any portfolio.

In previous editions of Top Pick Tuesday, we have made plans around stock splits and taking advantage of the usual pattern around this action, most notable around Walmart (WMT:NYSE) and Nvidia (NVDA:NASDAQ). Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (CNQ:NYSE) also incurred a stock split on June 11th, 2024 and has since offered a better entry point before starting to regain share price.

The chart below shows the street consensus with 12 Strong Buys, 10 Holds, 0 Sells and the 12-month Price Targets (PT) as follows:

  • Low: $34.40 USD (-3.62%)
  • Average: $41.31 USD (+15.74%)
  • High: $46.11 USD (+29.19%)

As an added bonus to holding CNQ, the company offers a 4.45% dividend, paid quarterly and helps add a little extra to the bottom line.


Using the visual aid below, the following colours are used:

  • Blue: 52-week high.
  • Red: 52-week low.
  • Green: 12-month PTs (low, avg, high).
  • Orange: Support/resistance lines, split information
  • Yellow: Our potential plan targets.

Our thesis started from the stock split, so to focus on that notice the price pulling back from the high of $41.29 USD before the split and pulling down to a fairly strong support at $33.26 USD from late 2023. The price held that support to bounce and start a potential recovery upward. Looking at some other indicators like the MACD and RSI on the bottom of the chart, both are showing strength indicating a potential continued move to the upside.

As for targets, indicated in yellow shows the first target at $39.16 USD which was a strong resistance level earlier in the year, breaking through will get us back to 52-week highs and the average 12-month PT at $41.29 USD. As always to mitigate risk it is recommended to secure profit and set stop-losses – using profits the third target is the high 12-month PT at $46.11 USD.
