The Corona Virus has had its toll on the marketplace in general. But some select names have rallied sharply off the March 2020 lows, Overstock is one of those names. Overstock has managed to rally from a low of 2.53 in March 2020 to a recent high of 40.90, with plenty more upside left in the sequence. Lets take a look at the company profile:
“Overstock.com, Inc. is an American internet retailer headquartered in Midvale, Utah. Overstock.com was originally founded in 1997 by Robert Brazell as D2: Discounts Direct. Two years later, it was sold to Patrick M. Byrne who renamed it Overstock.com. The company initially sold exclusively surplus and returned merchandise on an online e-commerce marketplace, liquidating the inventories of at least 18 failed dot-com companies at below-wholesale prices. The company continues to sell home decor, furniture, bedding, and many other goods that are closeout merchandise; however, it also sells new merchandise.“
Lets take a look at the Elliott Wave view of Overstock, it is counting clean, and has an incomplete bullish sequence to the upside.
