Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) investors wondering whether it will again fall
For more than eight months, Twitter (NYSE: TWTR ) stock has seen little movement. Since last August, TWTR has reached the $35 per share level twice – only to retreat. For the first time since December, Twitter stock again trades near that key level, leaving investors wondering whether it will again fall. Still, given the specter of a possible triple top, the range on TWTR stock should decide the timing on buying the stock, not the buy case itself.
Twitter stock should – and almost certainly will – rise above its range. When this move finally occurs is another matter. Considering the PE ratios and expected profit growth rates alone, TWTR will have to break out of the range at some point. For this reason, TWTR stock is a buy, but only at the right time.
Two key levels will determine that time. Those wanting to buy tend to focus on the double top in Twitter stock. However, traders need to remember that TWTR has also established a double bottom. It has twice bounced back from levels of just below $27 per share. If it reaches that point, TWTR stock becomes a clear buy. Considering the fundamentals, I do not see Twitter breaking the lower range as a likely possibility, but I would sell if that occurred.
The other buy point comes just beyond the top of the range. Since last August, Twitter stock has established a record high of $37.14 per share. I think if it can stay above that price, traders can safely assume that the stock has finally broken through its range. From there, I think TWTR could retest its 52-week high of $47.79 per share.
Fundamentals, charts, and the competitive situation of TWTR stock itself make the stock a buy. Now, the question becomes when. Knowing when to buy comes with patience. Investors should wait for Twitter stock to either retest the lows of the range, or to break out of the range on the high side. At either point, the equity will probably move higher.
The key hinges on understanding how the range affects the movements in TWTR. By understanding that pattern, traders can not only purchase a stake in a stable company, but they can also buy at a time that will maximize their profits in Twitter stock.
