Oil and gas name EOG Resources Inc (NYSE:EOG) has been sliding since its late January peak, last seen down 1.2% at $123.14, and now sporting a 4.8% year-to-date deficit. There is reason to believe the shares could soon stage a bounce, however, as this pullback has EOG within one standard deviation of its 260-day moving average -- a trendline with historically bullish implications.

Over the past three years, EOG has seen three similar signals, after which the stock has been positive one month later 67% of the time, averaging a 7.5% gain, according to data from Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White. The equity's 200-day moving average has provided support over the last 12 months as well.
