Timing Analysis and Share Projection

Learn Timing Analysis

Timing is an important element of the marketing mix. It can be used as a strategic marketing variable to meet competition that arises due to many different factors prevalent in the stock market domains. The timing of an investment can be seen as a dynamic mix of differently linked factors like needs and requirements of individual investors, the financial goals in sight etc. This is why at Tradebulls, we lay full emphasis on the accuracy of timing factor, something that can, in the long run become a source of profit for the firm. Timing analysis is usually done based on the market situation, cost factor, demand and individual priority. However, it must be kept in mind that timing analysis goes hand in hand with the projection of a share’s performance in the long run.

How to Project Shares?

This can be further illustrated through an example here:

Ms. AH was earlier a middle-ranking employee in a reputed oil group. With the idea of building up a corpus for her marriage and related expenses, she bought some shares of the same company. As months went by and the shares gave out steady dividends, she invested some more in the same oil shares. The brokerage firm whose services she had been using began estimation of share performance shortly and advised her that after retention for at least one more year, she should ideally plan of selling the shares as the global oil pricing factors came into play rapidly. Heeding this advice, Ms.AH went ahead with the same plan of action. Around the time she sold off the shares, it was becoming evident that those shareholders who were keen to adopt the policy of wait and watch were making a mistake. This was because the projections of leading firms already forecasted a rapid fall in global oil prices. Like those who took note and made the timely decision to sell off with the reaped profits, Ms. AH thanked her stars as the projections came out to be accurate.


This is how timing analysis, as done by leading firms like Tradebulls, can lead to better decision making regarding the performance of a share. Another critical aspect is the fact that timing analysis and the decision regarding the selling or retaining of any shared work on the factor of elasticity of demand. What this means in essence is that elasticity of demand tells us the extent of change in demand and if the same can be forecast. In simple terms, the demand for certain shares would not tend to fall, just because the prices have increased. This can be seen in case of high performance, generally large-cap to mid-cap companies. However, there are instances, generally evident in the small-cap companies where as soon as the prices increase even to a small extent, the demand for the shares goes down. This is why an efficient platform like Tradebulls takes care to ensure that periodic estimation is done, regardless of whether they share in question is small or mid-cap.
