Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) one worry is the growing push by regulators and politicians to crack down on Big Tech

Facebook stock rose 1.1% Wednesday to 197.20. That’s just below a 198.58 buy point from a long, deep cup-with-handle base. The cup depth of 44% is worrisome. However, the handle itself is long enough to be its own base. By that measure, Facebook stock does not have an unhealthy drop.

The relative strength line for Facebook stock has trended higher since late November. It’s just below its handle high, a bullish sign. The RS line, the blue line in the charts below, reflects a stock’s performance vs. the S&P 500 index.

Facebook earnings are expected to fall 7% in 2019. But analysts see EPS growth rebounding to a robust 32% in 2020.

One worry for Facebook and Google, and to a lesser extent Apple and Amazon, is the growing push by regulators and politicians to crack down on Big Tech. While Facebook stock and Google stock plunged on antitrust probe fears on June 3, helping to set the recent stock market low, investors haven’t been too concerned so far about threats to Big Tech business models.
