Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) Traders Expect Stock Will Rise More than 10%
Twitter’s stock has risen 20% since the beginning of October after the company delivered better than expected third quarter results. The sharp gain is a stark contrast to the broader stock market’s sell-off. Now, options traders are betting the stock will rise another 12% by the middle of January. Technical analysis also suggests the shares may advance short term.
A key driver is that analysts are boosting earnings and revenue estimates.
The company reported earnings of $0.21 per share versus estimates of $0.14 per share, while revenue was 8% better than expected. The stronger than expected results have led analysts to up their fourth-quarter earnings estimates by 11% and revenue by 4%.

A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 7 white candles and 3 black candles for a net of 4 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 29 white candles and 21 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.
An engulfing bearish line occurred (where a black candle’s real body completely contains the previous white candle’s real body). The engulfing bearish pattern is bearish during an uptrend (which appears to be the case with TWITTER INC). It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bulls to the bears.
If the engulfing bearish pattern occurs during a downtrend, it may be a last engulfing bottom which indicates a bullish reversal. The test to see if this is the case is if the next candle closes above the bottom the current (black) candle’s real body.
