7/12 WWE Stock Track – WWE hits new 2016 high-point, but closes down from Monday’s big pop


WWE Stock Track 2016
Week 26 – July 11-15

Tuesday, July 12: WWE hit a new year-high of $21.19 per share on Tuesday.

However, the stock closed at $20.09 per share, down two percent from Monday.

The stock peaked above $21 very early in the morning, then progressively fell off the remainder of the trading day.

The peak of $21.19 was the highest point since WWE hit $21.33 on October 26, 2015. This was followed by the Big Drop a few days later when WWE reported Third Quarter 2015 financials. WWE did not $20 again until eight months later on Monday…

Monday, July 11: WWE crossed over $20 on Monday for the first time this year, hitting a new 2016 high-mark of $20.63 per share.

WWE finished at $20.46 per share, up nearly one dollar (4.9 percent) from Friday’s close of $19.51. WWE outpaced the overall stock market increasing by half-a-percent on Monday.

It was the highest point since October 28, 2015 when WWE reached $20.62 per share. The next day, WWE reported Third Quarter 2015 financials that did not meet investor expectations, sending the stock tumbling to $18.98 on Oct. 29, 2015.

It took nearly nine months for WWE to return to the $20 level, achieving the mark on Monday. Plus, the stock grew throughout the day, peaking in the afternoon.

Yahoo Finance speculated that the increase may have been driven by UFC’s sale, which set a sports transaction record at $4.o billion. Because UFC and WWE have similar business models, it’s possible investors sought out an investment in a related publicly-traded company like WWE since UFC is not publicly-traded.
