Twitter (TWTR) stock news
Elon Musk has offered to buy Twitter (TWTR) for $54.20 all cash. Elon Musk recently made headlines when taking a large stake in the company and now this appears to be his possible end game. Reuters reports that Elon Musk delivered a letter to Twitter on April 13 detailing his proposal. "My Offer Is My Best And Final Offer"; Says If Offer Is Not Accepted, "I Would Need To Reconsider My Position As A Shareholder"..."I Don't Have Confidence In Management Nor Do I Believe I Can Drive The Necessary Change In The Public Market"-Reuters. "I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy," Musk told Twitter Chairperson Bret Taylor on Wednesday, as disclosed in an amended SEC filing on Thursday morning. "However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company."-Benzinga.
Wow, well Elon Musk certainly knows how to keep things interesting. Twitter (TWTR) stock rallied sharply up to $53.99 before retracing slightly to trade at $50.93 at the time of writing for a gain of 11%.
Twitter (TWTR) stock forecast
The current spike is topping out just where Twitter (TWTR) spiked on the previous disclosure of Elon Musk's stake. This then looks like a classic bearish double top. Newsflow is likely to be the main driver here rather than technicals but this is interesting if Elon Musk steps away as his "I Would Need To Reconsider My Position As A Shareholder" hints at. The best and final offer does seem to put a top on the price for now unless some other bidder emerges for Twitter (TWTR).
