Technical Analysis

Looking at popular technical indicators, the company’s 5-day moving average is 34.70 compared to the 50-day moving average of 33.39. So, we are clearly seeing an upward trajectory here.

The Relative Strength Index or RSI is an indicator ranging between 0 and 100 that traders use to determine if a stock is “overbought” or “oversold.” A strong uptrend tending to reach into the “overbought” status is above 70, while a downward trend will stay around the 30 mark. PINS currently holds a 9-day RSI of 49.41%, while 100-day RSI stands at 56.31%.

Another indicator we believe is worth keeping tabs on is the Moving Average Convergence Divergence or MACD. Similar to the concept of the Force Index — on the basis of price momentum — the MACD gives traders a tool to measure the turning point of a stock even during rapid fluctuations in price. Buy and sell signals are determined by a stock’s relation to the zero line, so if a stock is above a zero line for many weeks it might be a “buy.” On the other hand, if a stock is below the zero line consistently, it might be one to stay away from. Also, if the MACD line reaches a peak and dips, its momentum may be waning. PINS’s 9-day MACD is -0.90 and the company’s 100-day MACD stands at 9.14.
