This article looks at some of the big movers off the back of recent earnings announcements, as we try to find stocks that provide potential trading opportunities.

Typically, earnings announcements and trading statements will drive a shift or enhancement of market sentiment. While many see earnings as a significant risk when holding a stock, placing trades in the wake of such events allows for greater confidence that all market knowledge has been factored into current prices.

PepsiCo

PepsiCo shares have been lifted by news of higher-than-expected revenues in the three months to September, with investors largely ignoring the fact that supply issues look set to drive prices higher in 2022.

That would primarily be down to the fact that the firm seems willing to pass those increased costs on to the consumer rather than decimating margins.

The stock has pushed higher after a period of declines that took us back into the 61.8% Fibonacci support level at $150.36. The wider uptrend holds, and we expect to see new highs in place before long. That trend holds unless we break back below $144.63.

Levi Strauss

Levi Strauss shares have turned upwards after an earnings report that saw the firm post better-than-expected earnings and sales for the fiscal third quarter.

The firm’s diversified manufacturing model means they have been relatively less affected by recent supply bottlenecks.

From a charting perspective, the push through $26.28 comes off the back of a decline into the $24.22 support level. This latest period of downside looks a buying opportunity given the long-term uptrend in place here.

With that in mind, a bullish outlook is in play until price breaks back below the recent low of $24.00.

    • haha, Patrick Vallance - ‘the reason this one is worrying is the combination of transmissibility and the potential for some degree of escape from vaccines because of the changes.’ They haven’t even tested it against the vaccine but they know in advance the vaccines wouldn't work. Some degree of escape haha, total you mean, as said, only cooking the books allowed Delta to look like the vaccines still worked - a bit. Don't comply, stop swallowing this never ending stream of utter garbage.        
    • haha, did you get your text from the NHS today?     ''Just got this text from NHS. Interestingly, since “fully vaccinated” now means: “at least 14 days since 3rd jab” or “between at least 14 days & < 6 months of 2nd jab” the 8 out of 10 is probably about right. But totally misleading. Less than 1 out of 10 have had no vacc.''   Prof Norman Fenton @profnfenton  37m   🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 ''If I happened to miss the first 3 jabs and go straight to the 4th, am I good? Or do I need the first 3 that don't work...to be combined together, in order to make the 4th one work? This science stuff is confusing!''     Rule Boy @RuleBoy11
    • The use of non-sterilising vaccines drives the evolution of viruses and creates new variants - this is ABC virology and an incontestable, inescapable scientific fact, known for decades. What newspaper columnists and media talking heads say cannot change this one iota.
