JPMorgan’s Doug Anmuth is appearing on online advertising next year and he thinks Twitter will show the biggest resurgence as its sharper advertising decline is driven by a pandemic. The analyst believes Twitter stocks are trading at a “huge discount” to Snap Inc. (SNAP) and Pinterest, Inc. (PINS), and prefers Twitter’s risk-reward balance.
Last week, Twitter stock jumped after Snap announced a native Twitter integration that would incorporate tweets into Snapchat as an interactive embed. The move gives those who build screenshots of tweets a better user experience by allowing those who have logged in to both services to share tweets instantly in Snapchat.
From a technical standpoint, Twitter stock broke out of previous highs during Wednesday’s session. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) moved further into overbought territory with a reading of 78.90, but the moving average moving average (MACD) remained in a strong bullish uptrend. These indicators suggest that the stock would see some near-term consolidation, but the mid-term move remains bullish.
“At a discount” is the term used to describe the use of stock sales, or other securities, below their current market value, similar to sales of goods at a point of sale.
Traders should look for consolidation above previous highs of $ 52.93 over the coming sessions. If the stock breaks down, traders could move towards trendline support at $ 43.75 or the 50-day moving average at $ 46.49. If the stock expands its rally, traders will see a move towards a trendline resistance at $ 58.40 over the coming sessions.
The bottom line
Twitter shares moved higher during Wednesday’s session after JPMorgan upgraded the stock to Overweight with a $ 65 price target. While the stock moved further into oversized territory, the medium-term movement remains bullish. Traders should look for some consolidation between advance highs of $ 52.93 and resistance to a move at $ 58.40 over the coming sessions.
