Schlumberger facing potential resistance ahead of earnings

Oil service provider Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB) is scheduled to release its second-quarter earnings results on July 19 and analysts expect the company to report earnings of $0.35 per share. The company earned $0.43 in the second quarter of 2018, meaning analysts expect an 18.6% decline in earnings on a year over year basis.

Schlumberger has been struggling for the last few years and the EPS have declined by an average of 3% per year over the last three years. Earnings were down by 21% in the first quarter compared to the first quarter of 2018.

In addition to the poor earnings results, the company’s management efficiency measurements are subpar. The ROE is 6.2% and the profit margin is 8.4%. Both of those figures are below average.

If the fundamentals weren’t enough, the technical picture is also pointing toward a rough period for Schlumberger. Looking at the weekly chart we see that the stock has been trending lower for the last year and a half and a trend line has formed that connects the highs from that period. The stock is closing in on the trend line now, but it is overbought on the daily chart.

In addition to the possible resistance looming just overhead, the Tickeron Trend Prediction Engine generated a bearish signal for Schlumberger on July 11. The signal shows a confidence level of 70% and it calls for a drop of at least 4% within the next month. Past predictions on Schlumberger have been successful 76% of the time.

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is developing rapidly.Data mining can deliver raw numbers, but it does not necessarily provide actionable insights. Structure is necessary to taking abstract information and extracting commonalities, like averages, ratios, and percentages.
You have enough faith in that stock, based on research, that the return will equal or exceed the investment.  Do unto others.The principles outlined here will ensure that happens.  Principle #1: Diversification Investors can’t be one-dimensional when constructing a portfolio.
Some of the world’s biggest financial institutions have devoted multi-million dollar budgets to developing algorithms that can find patterns in the market, identify trends, and perform automated trading designed to take advantage of even the smallest price movements. The AI revolution is so big that as it stands today, the world’s five biggest hedge funds all use systems-based approaches to trade financial markets.Indeed, quantitative trading hedge funds now manage $918 billion (according to HFR), which amounts to 30% of the $3 trillion hedge fund industry – a percentage continues to grow with each year that passes.
Where smaller, more volatile companies can placate shareholders with higher returns, larger companies often use dividend payouts to entice new investors and hold their existing ones. These low-risk options may not work for every investment approach, but dividend-producing stocks can offer great benefits under the right circumstances – especially for portfolios built for the long-term.Beyond the ability to rely on these semi-regular payouts as an income stream – a strategy favored by retirees – dividends are an excellent vehicle for compounding earnings through reinvestment.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and fintech have an inherent compatibility that has become clearer as each sector has matured, with recent growth and successes on their own accord bringing new ideas about how they can work together.AI can analyze information at far greater quantities (and far more quickly) than any human, making it a natural fit to help fintech firms streamline and automate processes that benefit customers and businesses alike. Fintech has brought a revolution of convenience to the finance world.
You’ve set up your bitcoin wallet and have acquired some bitcoins, and now you’re ready to use them – what’s next?But be VERY careful to double- or triple-check that the address is correct – crypto transactions are irreversible, and a typo almost certainly means permanently losing the bitcoins you were trying to send. One way to avoid potential slip-ups is to scan a QR code (when available) for the destination address.
Mainstream acceptance has come in fits and starts, with regulatory approval proving hard to come by for a variety of reasons – not least of which the ever-present risk of theft via hacking or other means, which pose an especially large obstacle to attracting investment from mainstream institutions. Because crypto holdings are only accessible via a specific private key, they are susceptible to loss – literally, if the key is written on a piece of paper or a physical hard drive, methods of offline ‘cold storage’ – or through hacks if held in an online wallet.Reuters reports that over $800 million in crypto assets were stolen in the first half of 2018, creating justifiable concern for both owners and mainstream financial institutions alike. Some type of insurance coverage would potentially mitigate the risks inherent to owning crypto assets – if insurers are willing to play ball.
Don't fall prey to common financial traps that can derail your financial planning efforts. In this article, we highlight four traps to keep in mind, including the importance of refinancing rather than consolidating student loans and credit card debt, prioritizing debt repayment over investments, limiting news consumption, and understanding the true costs of buying a home. Learn how AI tools from Tickeron can help investors make informed decisions and achieve their investment objectives.
Paper wallets are extremely useful tools – beyond being one of the most popular and secure cold storage methods, they make it simple to transfer coins between owners.You can access the funds on your paper wallet by “sweeping” (or importing) them to either a live wallet (like Trezor or Exodus) or an exchange service (like Coinbase). Most services allow you to import them directly from your wallet’s private key, but there are two key exceptions.

You’re a trader, not an investor. It’s important that you understand the difference before choosing an actual trading style. Traders perform their magic over shorter periods of time, sometimes within minutes or hours. Investors are more passive. They purchase equities and hold them for months or years, relying on a long-term return. Traders evaluate buys and sells based on technical analysis...
Looking to invest your money in the stock market?
