GSK results preview: What does the street expect?

While GlaxoSmithKline (in partnership with Sanofi Pasteur) look to stage three trials of their Covid-19 vaccine, the company has not yet released a vaccine to market. The global rollout of Covid-19 vaccines (by competitors) looks to have disrupted the course of other vaccine programmes in key markets such as the US and the UK for GSK.

Revenue for second quarter (Q2) 2021 is expected to be bolstered by sales of newer drugs in the respiratory and HIV segments, with a partial offset from older drugs which are finding increased competition through generic offerings.

In terms of the upcoming results, a mean of analyst estimates compiled by Refinitiv data arrive at the following:

The share price of GlaxoSmithKline continues to trade in an uptrend which has been in place since the beginning of March 2021. The price has however started to correct from near term highs.

The correction sees the price now testing support at the 38.85 level. Traders looking for long entry might prefer to see a bullish price reversal around current levels accompanied by a sharper move out of oversold territory by the Stochastic oscillator. In this scenario, the recent high at 40.55 would become the initial resistance target, while a close below 38.35 could be used as a stop loss consideration for the trade.

However should a bullish price reversal not manifest and we see the price move to close below both the 38.85 and 38.35 support levels, this could instead be a suggestion that the uptrend has failed and perhaps a new downtrend for the share price is forming.
