Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:REGN) shares have crossed bearishly below their 10-day moving average of $172.67 on a volume of 135K shares. Swing traders may find an opportunity for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $188.95 and a 52-week low of $42.83 and are now trading 302% above that low price at $172.30 per share. Over the past week, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone up 0.4% while the 50-day MA has declined 0.3%.

Potential upside of 9.1% exists for Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, based on a current level of $172.30 and analysts' average consensus price target of $188.00. The stock should discover initial support at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $170.88 and subsequent support at its 200-day MA of $152.65.
