Perrigo (NASDAQ:PRGO) crossed under its 10-day moving average of $194.92 on a volume of 431K shares. This may provide short-term investors a chance for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

Based on a current price of $194.80, Perrigo is currently 0.5% above its average consensus analyst price target of $193.75. The stock should discover initial support at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $188.66 and subsequent support at its 200-day MA of $163.82.
