Red Hat shares fall after analyst downgrade

Filed under
Linux

Shares of Red Hat dragged the S&P 500 index back from the brink of a record high after an analyst downgraded the company amid doubts about its growth prospects.

The Raleigh-based open-source software company (NYSE: RHT) fell 4 percent to $48.54 in early afternoon trading.

Raymond James (NYSE: RJF) analyst Michael Turits cut his rating on the company to “market perform” from “outperform,” comparable to a downgrade to “hold” from “buy.”

History Hints At Something BIG

istockanalyst.com: One way or the other, iStock would not be surprised to see a major move from RHT following their quarterly profit checkup. Red Hat experienced on if its highest volume days in the past year, coming at number three. We see the activity as distribution, meaning money players were selling the stock, despite a research report claiming the technology company is a good risk/reward play for EPS.

Much like the axiom accumulation comes before appreciation, distribution usually leads depreciation; not always, but more often than not, a lot more often.

Depending on how you look at things, today's April option volume and the month's open interest shows that speculators are betting big on the bullish side of post-eps performance.

  • AMDGPU DC Code Lands For Linux 4.15 Kernel
    Linus Torvalds has accepted the AMDGPU DC display code pull request for the Linux 4.15 kernel. AMD Linux users can now rejoice! Overnight David Airlie sent in the AMDGPU DC pull request for Linux 4.15 and since then Linus Torvalds was active on the kernel mailing list ranting about AMD header files and other unrelated to DC code. He was also pulling in other PRs... It was getting a bit worrisome, given the DC code not being in pristine shape, but it was exciting as heck to see this evening that he did go ahead and pull in the 132 thousand lines of new kernel code to land this AMDGPU DC. Linus hasn't provided any commentary about DC on the kernel mailing list as of writing.
