Oracle Goes From Green To Red After Acquisition Of NetSuite

Oracle Goes From Green To Red After Acquisition Of NetSuite - Oracle Corporation NASDAQ:ORCL, Netsuite Inc NYSE:N

Oracle Corporation ORCL 0.54% has announced a huge deal to expand its cloud business by buying NetSuite Inc N 18.07% for $9.3 billion.

“Oracle and NetSuite could applications are complementary and will coexist in the marketplace forever,” Oracle CEO Mark Hurd said in a statement. “We intend to invest heavily in both products — engineering and distribution.”

After trading as high as $41.40 right after the market open, Oracle stock is now down about 0.3 percent in Thursday’s session.

PreMarket Prep’s Dennis Dick explained this morning why he took a short position in Oracle following the news.

“On the bigger deals, they hit the acquirers. I don’t know if I see this thing going through $42, so I’m still sticking with my short because I think $42 is absolutely enormous for Oracle.”

In the past year, Oracle has twice tested the $42 level and failed both times, once in March and once again in early July. If the NetSuite deal serves as another short-term market top for Oracle, the stock could soon be headed down to its 200-day simple moving (SMA) average at around $38.50. The 200-day SMA served as support several times throughout the month of June.

So far this year, Oracle’s stock is up 11.9 percent.
