bracke: Good day fenners Even with the the large increase in share price over the last two days the AHT PE is higher at 28.5 with URI at 24.4. What's this!! The share price allowed to drop below 3900!!......but not for long; breathe easy. Those naughty algos were just playing and trying to alarm s/holders. Never fear normal service is resumed.
bracke: Below is the 1 hour chart. I've selected it rather than the daily because it provides a more detailed view. The share price is in a rising wedge. Following the long upper wick on the candle with the magenta flag it has dropped to the bottom of the wedge and is being resisted at 3900. An share price in a rising wedge does not continue to the apex of the wedge, it will break one way or the other by the time it is two thirds along the wedge. According to Bulkowski the break is down 60% of the occasions.......But (there's always a BUT) 1 This is AHT and AHT like to do the unconventional. 2 The situation in the US is not 'normal' and is likely to have a major affect.

perfido: Good evening bracke Re: post 58524 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have pondered the usefulness of continuing my TA posts on this site etc ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My apologies if you found my earlier slightly tongue-in-cheek comment wounding. I think I have mentioned before that I for one find your TA postings a useful part of the wider investment toolkit, and an aid to understanding the likely short term direction of the AHT share price and the optimal timing of a transaction. I understand only too well the difficulty of forecasting future events, after all I forecast Trumps impeachment some two years ago, who would have guessed he could achieve it twice in one presidential term? :-) Do keep up the good (TA) work! Edit: it looks like the price may have attempted to break out of the ascending. 'Wedge' to the upside, the next few days may be interesting.. .
bracke: Good day perfido "In summary, spoiling for an argument and clutching at straws springs to mind. :-)" ================================================================================== NO!!! "More to the point, with your vast experience of TA, how did you not see the recent AHTs price rise coming, and why did you not alert us? I can't be the only one who is beginning to have doubts about the usefulness of your TA!" =================================================================================== A review of my recent posts shows that I was bullish about the share price The antics in the US causing irrational exuberance make it difficult to be precise about the quantity of the moves but I did suggest largish moves. You will also have seen my recent post which attempted to ascertain the likely future price action by comparing it to a previous similar move. I do accept it was more conjecture than TA. I have pondered about the usefulness of continuing with my TA posts on this thread given that most posters appear to use fundamentals which are the polar opposite of TA. Not "Great Oracle". Elite Guru....please get it right. I don't sit over a steaming vent! EDIT I have previously posted that the share price is due a retrace. I think we are there now and expect a drop to at least 3600 at which point the cavalry are likely to arrive. It's about time they got a taste of their own medicine.
perfido: good day bracke ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If the buybacks restarted at the current price and the shares were cancelled would that not increase the SP? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Oh that it was so! The share price is a reflection of the investors future hopes and expectations as you know, and sometimes based on fundamentals.. On the balance sheet, a share repurchase would reduce the company’s cash holdings and consequently its total asset base by the amount of cash expended in the buyback. The buyback will simultaneously shrink shareholders' equity on the liabilities side by the same amount. The ultimate value of the buyback depends to a large degree on the stock's future price performance. If a company’s float has contracted by 20% over time, but the share price declines by 50% the buyback has had an adverse impact. (At one point, AHT fell to 1300 during 2020). However given time, the reducing number of shares sharing the company's profits should appreciate in value over time. Given the recent rise in AHT's share price, you might take the view that AHT is overbought and in the short term there is appreciable downside risk. However this is AHT, so anything could happen! DYOR
bracke: I had to laugh at the price action this morning. Look at the hourly chart above. The share price comes back down to yesterdays close at 3500 and puts the brakes on bang on 3500 but then! Shock horror! What's this! Who let it take that sudden drop below 3500! It's those nasty bear types trying to steal a march and catch us unawares, we'll soon sort them out. Bring in the cavalry! Just the sight of the dashing AHT Cavalry resplendent in their green velvet uniforms with gold piping and gold tassel epaulettes (no snide comments please) and the snivelling bears make a headlong retreat with their tales between their legs. The share price returns to its rightful place. Order is restored. Long Live AHT! EDIT But what's this! Those cowardly bears are trying to sneak back! How will this end? Return later for the next exciting episode of The Battle of 3500.
bracke: Thanks perfido It seems that the link shows the chart I am showing on my computer which is not very satisfactory. I will try to find an alternative. fenners An share price usually breaks up or down by the time it has run 2/3 along the wedge, they rarely continue the run straight through the apex. As I posted earlier, during holiday low volume periods the share price is 'played with'. It's easy to manipulate a price when volume is low. The 'true' situation resumes when the holiday period is over. If the share price is to b/out above the upper wedge line it will require more volume unless it can be done during the low volume period. The MACD and RSI are both high and the share price is a considerable way above the Daily SMA50, SMA100 and SMA200. Those indicators suggest a retrace is due at least to the wedge lower line.
bracke: Good day perfido It is possible; although unlikely; that you would qualify for the GOAT but at best it would be 3rd class membership. It has been suggested that the Elliot Wave fraternity aren't so much waving as gesticulating furiously in despair. Your intention to use the term 'trigons' whilst not de rigueur terminology is understandable given your terminological confusion. I of course will continue to use standard terms as required by my standing as an Elite Guru. Looking at the price action rather than triangles, wedges and such like does show that the share price is some way above the Daily SMA200 and SMA100. In addition the Weekly MACD and RSI are stretched. The share price dropped to the Daily SMA100 at the beginning of September and also November. If it repeats these drops in the near future that would take the share price to approx 2900. I appreciate that AHT does tend to do its own thing as I know to my cost but it can't defy gravity for ever. Just for the record I do not currently have a position in AHT.
bracke: Good day rescuer Does that mean you will short AHT when the DOW reaches 27,131 irrespective of what the AHT share price is? Have you considered that AHT share price may lag the DOW but then 'catch up' after you have taken your short?
fenners66: "The firm began investing in the four airlines in 2016, after avoiding the aviation industry for years" So I took American Airlines to look at as an example as we have previously looked at their buyback / debt figures. Share price in 2016 about $40 2017 low was about $40 average about $45 2018 average probably above $40 We can speculate therefore that BH paid say $40 AAL share price at the end of March was $18 having skimmed BH's accounts it is not clear whether the airlines were sold by then - or after. I guess after - when the unrealised loss at $18 may well have turned into a realised loss of around 75% at say $10. BH does not pay dividends and relies on share price growth - ie. if you want an income sell your shares. BH share price has fallen about 19% this year as well. AAL's share price has been falling since early 2018 - despite buybacks. I suspect that as he takes large stakes 10% + that he cannot exit a position easily and that buybacks of size provide the false liquidity required to be able to trade large positions otherwise he has both a positive and negative effect. Buying a stake of 10% will boost a share - whilst selling 10% will likely trash it. He can join the dots as well. However buying into the airline business which was racking up debt to support buybacks - which he had a vested interest in has done nothing for the share price of AAL for 2 years . Now the black swan event has happened it is a mistake.
