Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) Stock Performance
Facebook stock closed at 144.19, down 2.2%, on the stock market today. Company shares have plunged about 34% since hitting a record high of 218.62 on July 25. But Facebook stock fell 19% the day after the company reported second-quarter earnings that missed estimates on revenue.
Sebastian said that recent checks with digital marketing partners suggest stable demand from Facebook advertisers during the fourth quarter.
“There is little evidence of an advertising backlash related to recent data-privacy concerns, nor a material shift in ad budgets away from Facebook to other platforms,” he said. “We expect a solid Q4 report despite management distractions, with most of our checks suggesting Q4 ad trends were in line with expectations.”
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill has a buy rating on Facebook stock and price target of 180.
“Contrary to popular belief our data checks do not point to users and advertisers leaving in droves,” Thill wrote in a note to clients.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 155.13.
The projected lower bound is: 133.34.
The projected closing price is: 144.23.
A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 30 white candles and 20 black candles for a net of 10 white candles.
