Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) expect a bumpy ride
Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) shares appear to be feeling some sympathy pains from Facebook’s horrendous earnings report. However, Twitter will have a chance to make a case for itself in its own earnings report coming out on Friday before the markets open.
The consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters call for $0.17 in earnings per share (EPS) and $596.23 million in revenue for Twitter’s second quarter. The same period of last year reportedly had $0.08 in EPS and $573.86 million in revenue.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
The projected upper bound is: 46.45.
The projected lower bound is: 39.84.
The projected closing price is: 43.14.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
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.
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
