Shares of Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN) gained $2.62 or 2.65%, despite Friday’s market selloff, to close at $98.41 on solid volume. The stock has recovered nicely in the last few sessions since the recent low of 88.50 made in late August and has provided several meaningful signs of strength, by bouncing of its trendline support area around the 200EMA and then breaking above the 50EMA.

consolidated in a rectangle pattern in the 5.85-6.32 trading range. On Friday, the stock finally broke the top line of the trading range on decent volume and I expect more upside pressure in the coming days.
Getting into a trade is perhaps the toughest part about investing because of the level of research it takes. You get tips and suggestions from so many people, coming from so many directions that it’s difficult not to get utterly confused.

There’s TV news coming from the likes of CNBC and Bloomberg with dozens of analysts constantly talking about their favourite bets. There are thousands of business and finance websites – most of them reporting the same popular news. There are umpteen newsletters and then there are hundreds of tip-giving services.

The goal of fundamental analysis is to determine whether a company’s future value is accurately reflected in its current stock price. Fundamental analysis attempts to estimate the value of a particular stock based on a variety of factors, such as the current finances of the company and the prevailing economic environment. Fundamental analysis also may include speaking with a company’s management team and assessing how the company’s products are received in the marketplace.
