Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) Hovers Near Buy Point On Renewed Strength
Twitter hovers near a buy point and recently broke out on a stronger-than-expected quarterly earnings report.
Twitter has formed a very large and deep cup-with-handle base. That handle also qualifies as its own cup base, with a 41.02 proper buy point, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. The 5% buy zone tops out at 43.07.
An eight-day dip before the breakout offered an alternative buy point at 39.07. But as a practical matter, 41.02 was the best entry because the stock gapped past 39.07, without giving investors a chance to buy that low.
On the stock market today, Twitter stock fell 2.6% to 40.46. Twitter held its initial public offering in 2013, pricing shares at 26.
