Square, Inc. (SQ) Max Chart (Yahoo Finance)


We can see that SQ was trending neutral for sometime before skyrocketing at the start of the pandemic. It now seems to be trending neutral again, trying to find some direction. We see that their annual revenue continues to increase and that they've delivered beats at their last four earnings. The exponential growth of this company can be due to more small businesses being created during the pandemic. Although this company can be volatile at times, overall, it looks like it has been favored and has more room to grow as the economy shifts to the creation of more new businesses.
