Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) analysts are sensing a rebound

Back in 2012, before breaking out, Facebook’s IPO was heavily scrutinised and due to this the company witnessed a weak period. Then things suddenly changed for the better in Q2 2013, when Facebook made a huge comeback with its mobile advertising reaching $656 million.

In Q2 2013, total revenues reached $1.8bn and since then for the most part, the stock had done nothing but climb steadily. Total revenue was at $13.2bn in Q2 this year and in Q3 2018 it was $13.7bn.

All the FAANG (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) stocks have been suffering through October.  Amazon and Alphabet both missed revenue estimates last week and investors are also concerned as to why Amazon forecast lower sales for its normally bustling holiday season fourth quarter. Comparatively, Facebook’s story might not be so bad.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.

The projected upper bound is: 157.35.

Momentum Indicators
