As it approaches completion of a very large base pattern, AudioEye Inc.'s (AEYE:OTCQB) stock looks like it is shaping up for a major bull market. On its long-term 7-year chart we can see that a Cup & Handle base has formed with an extended Handle that could also be described as a chain of Handles. Breakout from this base will be signaled by a clear move above its upper boundary at the $10.00 level, with resistance up to the 2017 peak at about this level. If it gets above this level we are likely to see marked acceleration especially because the recent 1 for 25 reverse split has greatly reduced the number of shares in issue. We last bought Audioeye at about $5.00 (adjusted for the reverse split) back on 11th January just ahead of a spike and never sold it.
Traditionally reverse splits were seen as bullish for the obvious reason that they reduced the number of shares in issue, thus making the price more sensitive to increased demand and more likely to respond with gains. However, more recently they have acquired a bad name due to repeated stock diluters using the reverse split as a means to get the stock price back up to a "respectable" level so that they can whack shareholders with more share issues. Most investors now simply assume that management are crooks who will do this, but that is not the case with all management—some actually adhere to ideas that may be deemed to be old fashioned these days, like making good quality products and making money for shareholders. The management of AudioEye is believed to fall into this category. In any event, the stock price has responded well so far following the reverse split, and to date there have been no fresh dilutions. Before leaving the long-term chart it is also worth observing the positive volume pattern and volume indicators, which suggest that the chances of a breakout from the base pattern are growing rapidly.
The 6-month chart for AudioEye certainly looks bullish, with sharp rallies on strong volume punctuated by normal periods of consolidation, and moving averages now in decidedly bullish alignment. This is an "all systems go" chart, and barring a rudely timed stock dilution (management would have to be dumb to do a dilution here—if they are going to it would make a lot more sense to do it on a run-up after a breakout), it looks set set to break above $10.00 soon, which should cause the uptrend to accelerate. Note that even though it is described as already being in a bull market on this chart, the real action starts once it breaks out of the base pattern by breaking clear above $10.00.
Holders should therefore stay long, and AudioEye is rated a buy here for an imminent breakout and especially on any minor dips.
