14:48 EDTEXPEExpedia technical remarks ahead of earnings
In the past three months the shares have outperformed the broader averages, trading up 10.5% at peak. The trading range has largely been contained between $70 at the low and $80 at the high. With the shares near the top of the range and with a large short-base of approximately 10% of the float short, there would likely be a test to the life high at $82.36 on good news or guidance. Without resistance overhead, next objectives would be at $85 to $90. Calls show substantial open interest at the $85 and $88 strikes. If the results or guidance disappoint, then shares could test down to $76.26. Major support would be at the $70 area.
