A model is a mathematical formula that tries to explain something or predict something based on a set of inputs or conditions. The price of an item in a free market doesn't have to obey any model.

I'm assuming "buy" is obvious. "Strong buy" can have different criteria depending on the firm, but it reflects more strength (potential return, probability of higher return, etc.) than just a "buy" rating. Outperform means they think the stock will have a better rate of return that the overall market. "Overweight" and &...

Entire volumes have been written about the prediction of stock prices. Analysts, given their profession, presumably have at least a passing familiarity with some of these. They can use any number of techniques or their combinations to forecast the price. They could also be completely making it up and just saying they did analysis as well. It's not like ...

The DOW is a price-weighted index. Boeing makes up about 4% of the index, so any price movement in BA has a very minor effect on the index. It's more likely that the market as a whole was down due to some larger effect, and BA and the DOW were down because they are components of the market. Index funds track the index, which is a computed number from its ...

What are the reasons the index is so high with 1000% growth now compared to 12 years ago? Is one reason, the people have bought more stocks and invested 1000% now compared to the year 2010? One reason for the growth was that 2010 was at/near the bottom for stock prices. The index went up because stock prices went up. They went up because money flowed into ...

While it may not exactly fit your description, you might take a look at the Average True Range indicator (ATR) which provides the average of true ranges over a specified period of data. It measures volatility and accounts for price gaps. If you literally want to see the historical intraday price range for each day or intraday time period (high minus low) ...

You are basically asking, "how can I find stocks that will go up soon?". What sort of answer are you expecting? 😄 Oversold is a term most often used in technical analysis to describe a stock that has been "sold off" at an unusually high intensity, indicating an irrational panic in the market and supposedly heralding an imminent "...

Where Did "Bulls" and "Bears" Come From? ...the actual origins of these expressions are unclear. Here are two of the most frequent explanations given: The terms "bear" and "bull" are thought to derive from the way in which each animal attacks its opponents. That is, a bull will thrust its horns up into the air, while ...

Tl:dr Finance/Economics is arts(social 'science') pretending to be science. It's the bane of modern society. See Prof. Feynman's lecture "What is science" 1966. From an interview with the BBC: “Because of the success of science, there is a kind of a pseudo-science. Social science is an example of a science which is not a science. They follow the ...

IMO, for individual stocks, you should be investing in quality companies that are sector leaders with strong and growing free cash flow, low debt, and good management. Buying after pull backs is a good idea but there's no way to know where the bottom is. No indicator predicts the future which is unknown.

From the chart you can see that DAL has support in the $37 area and resistance around $43. However, that's a hindsight conclusion and it has no predictive value. Like other stocks, DAL will move up or down based on company news as well as what the market does.
