Gazprom shares on Thursday returned to the prices of the beginning of the week. The decline was due to the general market negative sentiment, so it would be logical to expect a recovery in case of an improvement in sentiment. Gas prices in Europe have stabilized after two days of decline, which reduces pressure on the instrument. Support level 290 rubles. remains valid. After a short consolidation in the range of 290-295 rubles. quotes may return to growth.
The mid-term outlook on Gazprom shares is positive. Trend indicators on higher timeframes look up, drawdowns were still short and quickly bought back. The share has its own fundamental driver in the form of high gas prices in Europe, which implies an upside over RUB 300. per share. This can support the activity of investors and contribute to outstripping dynamics in relation to the market as a whole.

Gazprom shares have returned to pre-pandemic levels, and the situation on the gas market allows us to hope that the growth will continue.
