Twitter shares jumped more than 4% on Wednesday after Morgan Stanley said in a filingwith the US Securities and Exchange Commission that it has a 5.6% stake in the company.

The bank – one of Twitter’s initial public offering underwriters in 2013 – owned a little more than 43.3 million shares as of December 31, according to the filing.

The move on Wednesday extended the rally in Twitter shares so far this year, which has amounted to an 11% gain year-to-date. Still, shares have fallen 34% from their 52-week high hit last June.

Last week, the stock took a hit after the company reported quarterly earnings. Though Twitter reported revenue and profits that topped analyst expectations, it said monthly active users fell by 9 million to 321 million.

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 31.97.

The projected upper bound is: 34.72.

The projected lower bound is: 27.51.

The projected closing price is: 31.12.
