Adobe’s quarterly results exceed market expectations

June 18, 2021 16:30

At the close of yesterday's session, we learned the quarterly results for Adobe's Q2, which were better than expected by the market consensus, compared to the other large companies in the sector.

Specifically, as we can see in these results, Adobe has an earnings per share of $3.03 and revenue of $3.84 billion compared to an earnings per share and revenue of $2.81 million and $3.73 billion expected by the market consensus.

After these positive results, Adobe shares are trading positive in today’s pre-opening with a rise of close to 3% after closing yesterday’s session at $551.36 per share and after scoring 1.48%.

Technically speaking, after marking all-time highs on June 14, the price is currently at the 23.6% fibonacci retracement level that acts as the main support level. As we can see on the daily chart, the price is at overbought levels, trading away from its blank 18-session moving average, although to reach that level the price would have to break several support levels.

The positive results may give a new upward momentum to the price, although due to the current overbought levels, we cannot rule out that the price may continue with the correction to subsequently make a new momentum, so we will have to be very attentive during the next sessions.
