In their June 16, 2020 earnings report, Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) saw a significant increase year-over-year increase in cloud revenue, a 3% increase in non-GAAP EPS, and a 9% increase in GAAP EPS. While cloud and earnings showed a positive change, revenues declined 6% and 4% with currency adjustments.
The Stock price on the earnings saw the price gap higher but finished in the middle of the daily range. The result following the earnings is that the price remained in its multi-month range from $51 to $55. The $55 resistance also happens to be an area of resistance from last year as well.
With such a long-standing level of resistance, it makes you wonder what the perception is for insiders in the company as the price once again finds itself at that level. Since June 24, there have been four insider trades totaling 6.7 million shares and over $360 million in value. While 5.6 million of the shares were sold by Chief Technology officer Lawrence Ellison with over 1 billion shares, it is still significant as an indicator.
