At the time of writing, the stock had reached $32.01. Pivotal Research reaffirmed a "hold" rating and issued a $17.00 price objective (up from $15.00) on shares of Twitter in a research report on Monday, July 17th. Now (8:08), TWTR is trading at $32.50 per share after a gain of $5.59 per share or 20.77% thus far this morning.

Shares of Twitter, Inc. Malaga Cove Capital LLC purchased a new stake in shares of Twitter during the third quarter worth about $154,000. SELL rating has been given by 0 analyst (s) and 2 analyst (s) given BUY rating to the stock.

Now, it looks like the strategy is reaping rewards for Twitter, with Dorsey confirming to analysts and investors today (8 February) that in the final quarter of the most recent financial year Twitter had been "investing a lot in measurement" and it had helped the firm's bottom line. Seventeen investment analysts have rated the stock with a sell rating, twenty-five have assigned a hold rating and five have given a buy rating to the stock. Current price levels see the company 29.92% off the 20-day simple moving average. The stock traded at $31.42 midday Thursday. The average volume stands around 102141698. At the time, the move was a natural one, created to bring brands better targeting, efficiency and measurement, as well as offering up an alternative to the Google and Facebook duopoly which accounted for in excess of 60% of the U.S. digital ad market past year.

The company has a quick ratio of 10.40, a current ratio of 10.40 and a debt-to-equity ratio of 0.35.

The firm has a market capitalization of $19,990.00, a P/E ratio of -61.74, a PEG ratio of 11.01 and a beta of 1.14.

Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) last announced its earnings results on Thursday, July 27th. Company fiscal year is ending in December and analysts' consensus recommendation is 0.09 for TWTR and estimated EPS for next quarter is $ -0.51. Ad revenue rose 1 percent to $644 million. The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the SEC, which is available at the SEC website.

On 2/1/2018 Robert Kaiden, Insider, sold 6,018 with an average share price of $26.17 per share and the total transaction amounting to $157,491.06.

Despite overcoming cautious Wall Street financial estimates, Twitter's global user growth - which has been a jitter-inducing subject for investors for years - remained muted. Its 330 million users doesn't put it in Facebook's league, but that total is nothing to sniff at. Toronto Dominion Bank grew its stake in shares of Twitter by 21.3% during the 2nd quarter. Key Square Capital Management LLC now owns 3,367,882 shares of the social networking company's stock valued at $80,863,000 after acquiring an additional 2,157,882 shares in the last quarter.

Twitter's previous inability to turn a profit had confounded investors given the company's ubiquitous presence in the media and popularity among celebrities, athletes and politicians such as US President Donald Trump.
