FFIV Stock: Wickedly Bullish

Buz Investors F5 Networks Stock In my line of work, when it comes to trading, I am either bullish or bearish on a potential investment, and this comes down to either liking or not liking what I see. I like what I see when it comes to F5 Networks Inc. (NASDAQ:FFIV) stock, and this is because it contains certain attributes that I look for in a potential investment. These attributes that I seek are found on the stock chart, or are generated using one.

This method of investment analysis is known as technical analysis, and it is based on the notion that historical price and volume data can be used to discern trends and forecast futures prices. I have been refining my craft using this method for nearly two decades, and it has become the basis of my trading strategies.

The F5 Networks stock chart is a thing of beauty and I fell in love with it the first time I laid eyes on it; to say I like this investment is an understatement. My admiration for this investment is apparent on many levels.

The bullish development is supported by the moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) indicator located in the lower panel. MACD is simple trend-following momentum indicator that uses signal-line crossings to distinguish between bullish and bearish momentum. A bullish cross was generated in August 2016, which indicates that bullish momentum is now propelling FFIV stock, and as a result, the path of least resistance is geared towards higher prices.

The bullish indications do not end there, as a golden cross was generated in June 2016. A golden cross is a bullish indicator that is generated when the 50-day moving average (highlighted in blue) crosses above the slower 200-day moving average (highlighted in red). Traders use this signal to confirm a bull market is in development, and I have found it wise to tilt my strategies in the direction suggested by this indicator.

Buz Investors Hulu live TV In its anticipated live TV service, Hulu will offer A&E networks, but won’t include networks from Viacom (VIA -0.2%, VIAB -1.6%) — leaving out some struggling but still key brands like MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon.

The service (co-owned by Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), Disney (NYSE:DIS), Fox (FOX, FOXA) and Time Warner (NYSE:TWX)) couldn’t come to terms with Viacom on its stations, but instead points to A&E content it will have: not only the flagship network, but also History, Lifetime and Viceland.

That’s the latest indicator that some companies with only cable channels and no broadcast channels face a struggle getting included in the “new packages” that are being formed with the advent of more streaming TV services. The deal could also make it even tougher for AMC Networks (NASDAQ:AMCX), Scripps Networks Interactive (NYSE:SNI) and Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCA) to squeeze into the Hulu service.

A&E is co-owned by Disney and Hearst.

Meanwhile, as part of moves to shore up relations with traditional distributors, Viacom had already removed its programs from on-demand service offered by Amazon.com and Hulu.

There are two parallel trend lines that define this trend; the upper trend line represents resistance and the lower trend line represents support. This pattern is known as an ascending channel and, as long as CUDA stock continues to oscillate within this channel, the trend toward higher prices is expected to continue.

The current consolidation wave was completed prior to the earnings release, as investors were already anticipating a good earnings report. The completion of the consolidation wave is illustrated on the chart above as a breakout. This breakout suggests that a new impulse wave is now set to develop, and a price advance that will take Barracuda stock above the previous peak at $26.69 can now be expected.

 

Barracuda Networks shares rise on profit beat, boosted by increase of active subscribers and billings

Shares of Barracuda Networks rose more than 8 percent Tuesday in premarket trade after the company reported a quarterly profit 8 cents above estimates, boosted by a 15 percent jump in active subscribers and a 13 percent increase in billings from a year earlier.
