 A little bit of the usual investment research before coming back to AroniSmart™'s findings.

Twitter Momentum

 Twitter (TWTR)  has been improving its revenues and returns since 2017.  Since then, Twitter has increased revenues, while decreasing its negative losses and turning operating income to positive returns, despite increasing costs of revenues. In the past, AoniSmart Sentiment Analysis has shown that Twitter's momentum has been fueled by initiatives to address concerns (see:  AroniSmart Tech News  on Twitter here )

Addressing Concerns at Twitter

Since 2018, Twitter  has heavily invested in new new technologies related to Security, Mobile, and AI. Hence over the last years, Twitter appears to have slowly but  consistently addressing concerns raised by investors and others, by investing heaving in new capabilities to improve  Security and User Engagement while controlling or cutting costs. 

AroniSmart™ team  analyzed Twitter's performance dynamics, leveraging the Support Vector Machine  and Dominance Analysis  capabilities  of  AroniSmartIntelligence™ and uncovered interesting insights. The team analyzed the performance of TWTR vs 13 other internally  selected stocks  from  Oct 2019 to Oct 2020.

AroniSmartLytics™ Analysis: Twitter behaves like several stocks, but not the same

Based on the analysis, it was found that most of these stocks basically follow similar trends. Also, they are all impacted by the market conditions. However, the analysis found important nuances. 

Key findings started with a positive view:  most of the stocks had an upward momentum over the period spanning Oct 2019 - Oct 2020. However, like the general stock market, they faced a slowdown and high volatility in Q1-Q2 2020 before starting a bounce back. Trendwise, since  May  2020, the stocks have been on a catching up journey  reaching or a lot of of them mostly surpassing  the previous price levels.

From the analysis, it is clear that some stocks like TSLA, NTFLX, and AMZN had stronger upward momentum, since May 2020. TSLA experience the strongest, rather exceptional,  upside.  In Q3 2020, most stocks had basically back to or above the previous levels and engaged into a bullish rally. In  Q1 and early Q2 2020,  Twitter's momentum was significantly impacted by the market conditions, but  starting  in September 2020, it bounced back (see chart below). Since then, Twitter stock has maintained the  momentum.

 AroniSmartLytics™ modelling (see results on the Twitter Close Price Drivers screen shot ), shows the prices of the stocks that  appear to mirror each other: a high opening for  the stocks that tends to lead a decline or slow down in Twitter's closing price and a high opening for  the stocks that tends to lead an increase or growth in  Twitter's closing price.  Q2-Q4 2019 and Q2 - Jul 2020 dynamics appear to positively impact Twitter's prices, whereas Q1 has been challenging.

Twitter (TWTR) appears  to build  a momentum similar to that of  GOOGL, WORK, NTFLX, MSFT,  HD, WMT,  TSLA,  and BAC. At the same time, the upside of TWTR appears not to align with the prices of AAPL, AMZN, JNJ,  LOW, and MRNA.
