11:22 EDTPPandora rallies after CEO share purchase
The stock is being pushed higher by word that the CEO of the company made a purchase of 25,000 shares following the recent lows at $17.55. At the current price of $20.97 resistance is at the bottom of the bearish gap down in price from October 24th at $21.17. A move higher puts the shares back into the gap for a bullish gap fill. Resistance would be at $22.48 thereafter. Support is at $20.31. Approximately 10% of the float is short which is likely contributing to a squeeze higher.
11:05 EDTPPandora jumps following CEO share purchase
Shares of Pandora (P) are rallying after the company's CEO disclosed that he had bought 25,000 shares of the company's stock. WHAT'S NEW: In a regulatory filing last night, Pandora CEO Brian McAndrews disclosed that he had bought 25,000 of the company's shares on Wenesday at a price of $18.58 per share. McAndrews now owns over 475,000 shares of the stock, according to the filing. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt wrote that McAndrews purchased the stock using his own personal funds. According to the analyst, it is quite rare for CEOs to take such an action. McAndrews' purchase of the stock was "a strong vote of confidence" in the company, Devitt contended. He kept a $29 price target and Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pandora announced that it would hold a conference call next Tuesday to discuss proceedings before the Copyright Royalty Board. The board will determine the company's new royalty structure by December 2015, Devitt wrote. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Pandora climbed $2.30, or 12.5%, to $20.75.
