The Chart du Jour

Web-TV Thoughts

June 22, 2000

By, Barclay T. Leib

First AOL buys Time-Warner to secure a foothold for cable access to millions of U.S. households. Then AOL invests in small start-up TiVo and their personalized television platform. Do you think Steve Case has a bit of vision that just a few years from now we won't be dialing up AOL on modems any more, but doing so across our television/computer set-top boxes?

You bet he does, and AOL's recent announcement that it is investing $200 million in TiVo and strategically aligning with that company, ensures that TiVo will be there when that day becomes reality. The chart of TiVo is not for the feint of heart -- having had a range of 15 3/4 to 78 3/4 this year with daily swings of 10% upon occasion -- but in addition to AOL, this company is well aligned with the venture capitalists of Sand Hill Road, and likely on its way to greatness.

Technically, we also like the way (as shown on the chart above) that this stock recently burst through its Bollinger Bands and 100-day moving average (doing so on the AOL news), and then successfully found support at these old levels of previous resistance. This is a true sign of a trend reversal likely to continue.

If there is one high tech oriented company we might keep a special eye on, TiVo certainly represents a situation at the top of our list.
