Well, after looking at the long term chart - 3 Years and also the yearly and quarterly earning, I came to a conclusion that the recent fall in the stock price is purely a consolidation and it does not signal a reversal yet.

Looking at the above chart, Oracle is currently in the upward trading range. Although it have false break down move on the May 2011, it convincingly rebound and continue to trade within the range to the current level.
Studying this chart pattern, I will assume that the upward trend will continue until it hit a climax above the range with a superb high volume and high percentage increase in a single day. When this happen, you should then keep track for the reversal signal by looking at the other technical indicators. However, I don't see the climax for this stock happening anytime soon.
Both the yearly and quarterly earning growth are also a good reason this stock is a good stock that warrant a buy. The yearly profit increase for this stock is more than 10% for the last 4 years and I will predict that this type of earning growth will continue for Oracle Corp.
For those who waiting on the sideline to short this stock, it is surely a dangerous bet that should be consider wisely as I do not expect this stock to reverse its upward trend anytime soon.
