Technical analysis shows that the company has support at $52 and resistance at $62. The resilience of these levels will depend on the performance of the company. The stock is likely to pivot from $52 to find a new high between $62 and $65.

If the earnings miss, the stock is likely to take a nosedive from the valuation of $52. This is true especially because the stock is trading at some of the highest levels.
