Paramount Global stock (NASDAQ: PARA) has gained about 5% over the past month, outperforming the S&P 500 which decreased by -1.5% over the same period. The stock was also up by about 13% over the past week. Now, Paramount stock has actually seen multiple headwinds off late. The company’s Q3 earnings came in below estimates with adjusted EPS down 49% year-over-year as the company continued to invest in content and marketing for its streaming operations. A tough advertising market and mounting economic headwinds are also expected to weigh on the company’s holiday quarter results. That said, investors are likely seeing more value in  Paramount, considering that the stock is down by over 45% over the last year, with the streaming business actually making pretty good progress. Direct-to-consumer revenue expanded 38% year-over-year in the most recent quarter, with total direct-to-consumer subscribers standing at 67 million. Value investors such as Berkshire Hathaway have also been raising their stake in the company.

However, now that Paramount stock has seen a rise of about 5% over the past month, will it continue its upward trajectory in the near term, or is a sell-off imminent?
