Unum (UNM) Recently Broke Out Above the 20-Day Moving Average

After reaching an important support level, Unum (UNM) could be a good stock pick from a technical perspective. UNM surpassed resistance at the 20-day moving average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.

A well-liked tool among traders, the 20-day simple moving average offers a look back at a stock's price over a 20-day period. This is very beneficial to short-term traders, as it smooths out short-term price trends and gives more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.

Like other SMAs, if a stock's price is moving above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive. When the price falls below the moving average, it can signal a downward trend.

Shares of UNM have been moving higher over the past four weeks, up 9.6%. Plus, the company is currently a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) stock, suggesting that UNM could be poised for a continued surge.

The bullish case solidifies once investors consider UNM's positive earnings estimate revisions. No estimate has gone lower in the past two months for the current fiscal year, compared to 4 higher, while the consensus estimate has increased too.

With a winning combination of earnings estimate revisions and hitting a key technical level, investors should keep their eye on UNM for more gains in the near future.
