Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) significant potential for growth

Twitter is one of the dominant social media players, and has significant potential for growth, provided management continues to act prudently.

Its bears (rightly) point to Twitter’s multi-year revenue stagnation and slowing MAU growth, thus believing its current valuation is far too high.

While Twitter has near-term downside potential, the long term future for investors looks bright.

An area of focus during the earnings report will be user growth, as Twitter (TWTR) has reportedly slashed millions of suspicious accounts. The suspensions and shutdowns of accounts by Twitter are part of its effort to clear up the platform, allegedly used in an attempt to illegitimately sway the 2016 U.S. elections.

Twitter, a provider of online news and messaging services, is currently a member of the IBD 50, a flagship screen of leading growth stocks. These are companies that show strong relative price strength and top-notch fundamentals, among other traits.

Twitter stock is up 26% since breaking out from a cup-with-handle base at a buy point of 33.88 on May 21.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the upside.

The projected upper bound is: 46.64.

The projected lower bound is: 40.40.

The projected closing price is: 43.52.


A black body occurred (because prices closed lower 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 29 white candles and 21 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body).

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.
