Verizon Communications Inc gained 0.82% in the last trading day, rising from $49.74 to $50.15, and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days, but is still down by -5.34% for this period. Volume fell in the last day by -6.80 million shares, and in total, 12.09 million shares bought and sold for approximately $606.24 million. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.

Verizon Communications Inc lies in the lower part of a wide and weak rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $49.30 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.04% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $51.79 and $58.16 at the end of this period.

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday February 08, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Verizon Communications Inc holds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $52.12. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $49.79. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal.

Support & Resistance

Verizon Communications Inc finds support from accumulated volume at $49.90. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at $50.83, $50.89 and $53.23.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $50.83 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.

This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.77 between high and low, or 1.54%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.84%.

Verizon Communications Inc is oversold on RSI14 (28). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.

Our recommended stoploss: $47.26 (-5.76%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. Low RSI14 is 28 which reduces the risk some. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 6 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High


Verizon Communications Inc holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy-recommendation. At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Sell Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
