Meta Platforms (FB) – basic stock analysis

Meta Platforms, Inc. develops products that enable people to connect and share with friends and family through mobile devices, personal computers, virtual reality headsets, wearables, and in-home devices worldwide. It was founded in 2004 and is headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Our estimated price for the company is around 361 USD. Extremely negative and positive target price estimates range from 291 to 449 USD.

STATISTICAL ANALYSIS

Based on a long-term analysis of historical data, the average positive and negative daily returns are approximately 1.57% and -1.53%, respectively. The estimated daily return in both directions based on their probability of occurrence is 0.82% and -0.72%. Yesterdayโ€™s return was -2.10%, which is slightly below the first standard deviation. Our scoring is currently neutral (0) for the month-on-month change and -3 for price indexation. This means that we are in the extreme of a negative short-term phase of the cycle. Both scorings range from -3 up to 3. The estimated development of cycles based on our analytical systems is shown in the following chart.

Different moving averages (MAs) help us better identify trends across multiple time frames. We use 3 basic MAs to find out which sentiment dominates each horizon. The purple line represents the monthly , the green line the 6 months and the yellow line the annual moving average. As we can see in the chart below, all moving averages are currently in extreme bearish sentiment.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

The basic technical analysis points to a dynamic decline in the market price in the beginning of this month. However, it is still very close to the important demand zone (green rectangle), where is also the retracement level of Fibonacci 61.80%. According to our estimate of intrinsic value, the market price is currently very far from the negative (291 USD โ€“ red highlight) scenario. In addition, the psychological level of 200 USD could be an important support for the bulls. The short-term upward rebound could stop at around 260 USD, where is also the retracement level of Fibonacci 50.00%.
