One of three positive chart patterns to look for when doing technical analysis. It usually occurs after a stock has advanced off of a “cup with handle” or “double bottom” pattern. The “flat base” moves straight sideways in a fairly tight price range for at least five weeks and does not correct more than 15%.

On the stock market today, TENB stock advanced 1.9% to close at 45.55.
TENB stock has risen since the firm reported better-than-expected results for the fourth quarter on Feb. 7.
Tenable Sales, Earnings Top Estimates
Tenable’s adjusted earnings jumped 140% year over year to 12 cents a share in the quarter ended Dec. 31. Further, sales climbed 24% to $184.6 million. TENB stock analysts polled by FactSet had expected Tenable earnings of 7 cents a share on sales of $181.4 million.
“We are seeing incredible traction with Tenable One, which helps customers understand and reduce risk across the interconnected attack surface,” Chief Executive Amit Yoran said in a news release.
For the current quarter, Tenable forecast sales of $187 million, up 17%, based on the midpoint of its outlook. Also, it predicts adjusted earnings of 2 to 3 cents a share, vs. 6 cents in the year-earlier period.
About 43,000 organizations worldwide use Tenable products to understand and reduce cyber risk.
TENB Stock Gets Buy Rating
Wells Fargo analyst Andrew Nowinski reiterated his overweight, or buy, rating on TENB stock after meeting with company management earlier this month. Further, he has a price target of 58 on TENB stock.
In a note to clients, Nowinski said Tenable One will be key to the company’s outperformance in 2023.
Tenable One, introduced in October, has an opportunity to consolidate cybersecurity spending, Nowinski said. Meanwhile, it could “replace many point-product solutions,” he said.
“Tenable One takes the core vulnerability data, combines it with threat intelligence, which can then show the customer the likely path an attacker might attempt to exploit,” Nowinski said. “It enables customers to better understand where they are vulnerable and the threats that could impact their organization.”
