TransUnion (TRU) TransUnion is one of the big three credit bureaus in America. Large credit bureaus have built up sizeable databases over the years. It is difficult for a new entrant to build such databases and the credit bureau market is highly concentrated. Customers of credit data are not price sensitive either, as they want accurate data to make underwriting decisions. Therefore, such moats and growth opportunities in emerging markets boost the long-term prospects of TransUnion.
TransUnion went public in mid-2015. Its monthly chart since then shows a strong uptrend. There were three significant pullbacks in 2018, 2020, and early 2021. However, except in 2020, the price has remained within a clear channel throughout. The level at $83 has become an important one, acting as resistance earlier in 2019 and then as a support in 2021. Most recently, in March 2021, the price has bounced up from the bottom of the long-term trend as well as from the $83 support level. The price looks poised to move up to $100. A stop-loss can be placed below the bottom of the long-term trend, at around $80.
