T = Technicals on the Stock Chart are Mixed

Since its widely sought out IPO in 2012, Facebook has seen quite a bit of volatility. Has this volatility subsided, and is this company finally investable? Let’s take a look at the stock’s price action. First of all, Facebook saw big selling at the IPO price and has yet to hit those levels once again. The stock looks to have found a value range in the $17-$23 per share area and has uptrended higher since then but is pulling back from this year’s highs of about $32 per share. The next significant level of support for Facebook stock seems to be in the $23-$25 range. So, the stock may need a little more time.
