Once again, we have a weekend read with holistic perspectives for you. Analyzing the Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) stock this time, this post covers technical analysis by Antonio Costa – our friendly technical expert on the US markets – and combines that with views of Wall Street sentiment and investor activity about the stock on social media.
Technical Analysis by Antonio Costa
The bulls have no reason to be alarmed. In fact, they may have a great reason to celebrate, the stock closed the week above the key resistance level of $34, a strong Bullish signal for next week. The stock is setting up to break out and has one more level to go, which is $34.23. CSCO has been in a nice uptrend for the last 3 months and it looks very strong with all major exponential moving averages going up. Daily technical indicators are in bullish zones, with MACD and RSI showing some upward momentum. The stock has good upside potential, so keep watching the stock for further moves.
The Wall Street View
Encapsulated in Stockal’s Confidence Meter, the Wall Street opinion on Cisco has been on an upward path for the last couple of months. It went from 62% to 65% and then further up to 73% recently. While the price had earlier gone below 33, contrary to Wall St estimates, now it seems to be getting back up and was at 33.75 at the time of last observation. This almost matches the Wall Street price target, now.
Social Media Pulse and Stock Price
We won’t say we were not surprised to see the degree of correlation between the price and social media pulse curves for CSCO. Social Media Pulse measures the acceleration of social chatter for any stock on platforms like Twitter and StockTwits. Interestingly, price falls were met with decreased interest from investors and traders, something that doesn’t always happen with high-activity stocks.
Interestingly, the price rises were met with similar commensurate enthusiasm (or the reverse!). It will be great to watch future social interest that the stock garners. Must watch closely.
