By Amy Schwartz

Stone Energy (NYSE:SGY) crossed under its 10-day moving average of $31.34 on a volume of 663K 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.

In the past 52 weeks, Stone Energy share prices have been bracketed by a low of $29.13 and a high of $50.00 and are now at $31.23, 7% above that low price. In the last five trading sessions, the 50-day moving average (MA) has fallen 1.4% while the 200-day MA has remained constant.
