Renewable Energy Group went public in 2012. Its long-term monthly chart shows a sideways movement for about six years. However, it wasn’t until late 2019 that the stock began its strong uptrend. Over the next 16 months, the price went up 10X and crossed the $110 mark. Since then, prices have fallen by 50% in just three months. In May 2021, the downward trend was reversed as prices have found support at the $51 level. The $51 level is also close to the bottom trendline. If the reversal holds, then the likely price target is $90 and then over $100. A stop-loss can be placed below the bottom trend line at $45.
