Take Two (TTWO) Looks to End Downtrend After Developing A Double Bottom
Despite blowing away analyst estimates during their most recent quarter, Take Two Interactive (TTWO) stock is down 5% since reporting, flat from where I recommended purchasing shares in anticipation of stronger than expected Grand Theft Auto V sales. I still view TTWO as a strong long-term buy, and believe their downside is very limited from their current levels given their massive cash position and extremely valuable intellectual property portfolio. Both Microsoft’s (MSFT) Xbox One and Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation 4 sold over 1 million units on their release day, positive signs for the industry as a whole heading into the holiday season.
Looking at their chart we can see that Take Two has traded down sharply on the open the past two sessions, but bounced strongly off of the $16.35 level and recouped their initial losses each day, forming a very defined double bottom pattern. Shares could run into some resistance at $17, but a move above that level would confirm their short-term reversal and set the stage for a move higher. Take Two shares are currently at a very attractive entry point and I believe $16.35 will prove to be the floor for TTWO’s stock price moving forward.
