Rolls Royce Guidance Remains Strong
In July, Rolls Royce announced an expected operating profit of £1.2 billion – £1.4 billion and free cash flow between £900 million – £1 billion. However, the investment bank UBS predicted a £2 billion free cash flow in 2024. The newly appointed CEO for Rolls Royce is also expected to present some medium-term goals for the business at the end of November.
In other news, Bank of America also jumped on the bandwagon by increasing their Rolls Royce share price target from 190p to 260p. The bank listed the extremely bullish earnings report and the increased chances for better dividends for 2024 as the reason for the upgrade. The recent upgrade by the banks is another bullish sign for the stock of the jet engine manufacturer.
Rolls Royce Share Price Forecast
The price chart for LON: RR continues to trade above the 0.5 Fib retracement level that I mentioned in my previous forecast. The chart shows no signs of a potential reversal yet, but that does not mean the bears are gone. There is a bearish divergence developing on the daily chart, which must be concerning for the bulls.
The Rolls Royce share price forecast will is looking quite bullish as the shares head towards my bullish target of 0.618 fib level, which is 249p. However, if the price breaks below the 0.5 Fib level, a 15% correction toward the 174p support level could be on the cards.
