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.
