Bill.com (BILL) has been one of the better-performing IPOs to debut recently. The leading provider of cloud-based software that automates complex back-office financial operations popped more than 60% on its first day of trading two months ago.
Why all the hoopla? The company partners with 70 of the top 100 accounting firms in the U.S. as they target overlooked small and mid-sized companies. The pre-public numbers pointed to a company poised for growth, and this week's reported numbers did not disappoint, with Q4 revenues rising 50% year over year while their customer count grew 20%.
INTRADAY (60 MINUTE) CHART OF BILL.COM (BILL)
The stock gapped up over 20% on the news and, while most investors would think the stock's upside potential had been met, using an intraday (60-minute) chart would have helped to keep you in the stock, as it found support at its 5-hour simple moving average while the RSI and MACD remained positive.
BILL gained an additional 6% today following yesterday's bullish quarterly report and appears poised for further upside. I've marked up the characteristics of an uptrend reversal that occurred in late December, so you can be on the lookout for short-term sell signals when they arise.
And one more characteristic may be driving Bill.com higher - the company is viewed as a prime takeover target from one of its larger Fintech peers, which would help growth accelerate even faster.
