Hot Small Cap Stocks To Watch For 2018: Twitter, Inc.(TWTR)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Virendra Singh Chauhan]

    Twitter’s life as a publicly listed company has been short, and bitter for the major part. The San Fransisco, California-based micro-blogging company listed at a market cap of nearly $25B, which was called expensive at the time of the IPO. Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) immediately proved the naysayers wrong, gaining 60% in just 2 months following the IPO. However, the $39.3B valuation was the peakand the ride thereafterhas pretty much been downhill. The Micro-blogging platform is today valued at a market cap of $10.6B, down 58% from its listing valuation and 73% from the post-IPO peak. That’s been Twitter’s story, and it isn’t going to get better anytime soon. The future for TWTR stock looks just as bleak as the past, if not worse. Here is why we would be wary of buying into the micro-blogging platform even at these seemingly ‘cheap’ or ‘beaten-down’ prices.

    Regarding the president-elect, Tchir zeroed in on Trump's recent Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) habit of singling out and admonishing specific companies’ business decisions. Tchir questioned whether that tactic would continue to be effective after receiving some push back from Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE: TM), his most recent target. "He came out and tweeted against Toyota and knocked Toyota's stock down. If you look through what is going on Twitter and traditional media, Toyota is pushing back, and the Japanese government is pushing back." He's had carte blanche until now, where when he says something, things happen, he gets his way."

    When Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) released its third-quarter earnings results, it announced plans to lay off 9% of its workforce. The move was part of an effort to become profitable in 2017. Twitter lost $103 million in the third quarter and $290 million through the first nine months of the year.

    Shares of San Francisco, California-based Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)tanked by over 3.6% yesterday, following a correction in the broader market. The day also saw deep cuts in the stock prices of other popular tech names like Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL), AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) and NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA). So, to that extent, this correction isn’t specific to TWTR stock. This might tempt investors to buy the dip. After all, Twitter has fallen below the psychological $15 mark for the first time this year. What’s more, popular technical indicators like the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Bollinger Bands suggest that the stock has entered oversold territory. However, there’s no logical reason why investors should buy into the stock right now, unless they want to bet on the possibility of a buyout, which may also be a very risky proposition.
