  • Net profit: $1.33 billion against $1.17 billion last year.

Market reaction and forecasts

After the report was published, the shares of the company dropped. The decline happened in the form of a correction in an uptrend. The aim of the decline might be the lower border of the channel and the 200-days Moving Average.

Upon testing the support level, the quotations might bounce off it and go on developing the uptrend. However, they might still break through the 200-days MA and decline to $70.00.

After the test of the support level, the quotations might keep on with the uptrend.
