Is Yahoo Headed Towards A Selloff?

Yahoo bulls have enjoyed a nice ~2 years. The stock has rallied from the mid-teens to a high of 41.72 set earlier this year. That’s over a 150% gain in ~15 months. However, it looks like the party might be over soon as a bearish technical pattern is setting up Yahoo for a possible selloff.

The Chart

Below is a weekly chart of $YHOO. You can see, after it topped in January, the stock has made a series of lower highs as indicated by the yellow lines (at 40 first then at 37). All this while forming a slanted descending triangle pattern. If this pattern breaks, I’d expect Yahoo to give back some gains as those in the money take profits and those who got in too late panic out. The next major support area looks to be around 27.15, though I’d watch 30 for possible “psychological support”.  A close below 33 would confirm this pattern.
