Great Fundamental Story, But Will Gap Support Hold?

 | 

Last month, Ctrip.com (CTRP) posted both revenues and EPS well above Wall Street consensus estimates and it came on the heels of an earlier announcement where CTRP was involved in a share swap that resulted in Baidu (BIDU) owning a 25% ownership interest in the Chinese online travel company.  Volatility can be wild in CTRP, so only aggressive traders should consider the stock.  The 17% drop in four weeks since earnings were released is a perfect illustration of the volatility.  The weakness, however, could be presenting an opportunity as CTRP has seen its earnings gap almost entirely filled.  Technically, that can be a very interesting entry level. 

Happy trading!
