Shares of Palantir fell 8.75% to $15.55 on Wednesday, the biggest drop since November 2022. With that decline, the stock is now below its 50-day moving average at $16.16 for the first time since May. The price has broken its uptrend line, which was around $17, and its first support level near $16. Even worse, the stock has fallen six days in a row, reaching 22% during its losing streak, its worst six-day stretch since May 2022.

It's an odd move, as Palantir stock peaked at $19.99 on Aug. 1, a 211% increase since the beginning of the year. Palantir also reported earnings on Monday and numbers that initially looked good. The company reported earnings of 5 cents per share, in line with analysts' forecasts, while raising its revenue estimates. It even announced a $1 billion stock buyback.

Even analysts seemed to like the numbers. "Profitability is ahead of plan, FCF is holding up better than expected, there is $3 billion on the balance sheet, and there is enthusiasm that the company may be eligible for inclusion in the S&P 500 in the coming quarter," wrote Raymond James analyst Brian Gesuale.

"We reiterate our upgrade and move our target to $22.00." Even some bears raised their price targets.

But sales growth has slowed and sales estimates have only increased by $2 million, which is why the stock is now down. "In hindsight, we see this quarter as mixed at best, given the slowdown in growth and weak leading indicators," RBC analyst Rishi Jaluria wrote on Monday.

The next support level is $15, then $14. After that, investors need to look at its 200-day moving average at $10.

Hopefully that won't happen.

I don't have this stock in my portfolio and if there was a correction and a drop, I would price it and buy it.

Just be careful here, I think it's a really terrible risk and it might not work out at all... I only have a small position here :)

Sure I get it, and I'd probably shop around for a little money. This stock is not really for me and I don't want this stock to be a large or even medium position in my portfolio. However, I would take advantage of any downside.

Some kind of correction was bound to come. I would say it will be/is similar for $SOFI-0.3%. Potentially ideal scenarios for shorts in the Czech Republic? There's talk of a buyout everywhere - not a little.

Yeah, it had to... if I excuse my position, the growth there was really huge... so hopefully we'll stabilize and move on :)

So I wouldn't be so angry if it came to that, I'll happily dilute the position further :) I personally was happy with the results except for a few things, but that doesn't affect my view of the company and I'm moving on no matter what the price tag is. :)

Yeah yeah I read your status and I'm basically at peace with it... if PLTR collapses to $10, I'd probably increase my position there...

Yeah, I agree.
