|After hitting a high of $147 on March 9, 2000, Tibco Software (TIBX-OTC) experienced a sickening roller coaster ride that took it down into low single digits. It hit a low of $3.28 in October 2002 and has since been slowly but surely building a solid base. It recently completed the diamond bottom, breaking out of a topside diamond neckline on its highest volume in more than two years. |

|Figure 1 – Daily chart of Tibco Software showing a diamond bottom pattern that has been in the making for more than 400 days. It recently broke above its neckline on yearly high volume, which is very bullish. If the neckline holds, expect the stock to continue its upward march. The daily stochastic RSI is in overbought territory but the weekly stochasticRSI is giving a buy (upper window). The finite volume elements indicator (middle window) gave a buy signal on December 11-03. Signal by Recognia.com|

|From a market perspective, technology stocks have been heading lower in the last few trading periods making the purchase of a software company somewhat more risky as it is counter to the overall move of the Nasdaq. I would prefer to see the sector moving up before I went long. |
Fundamentally, Tibco revenues have been stable over the last five quarters and earnings have remained positive in the last year. Profits margins jumped from a loss of 35% for the year ending November 2002 to 4% for the quarter ending August 03. A price/earnings ratio of 185 is a concern especially considering it is more than 560% of the industry average. The company reported fiscal year earnings of $0.03 per share on December 17. Analysts had been expecting $0.06 according to the Wall Street Journal but the stock still jumped more than 7% the next day.
