The shares of streaming giant Roku Inc (NASDAQ:ROKU) faltered after their June rally to the $460 area, dipping lower on July 1 despite stringing together 10 consecutive daily wins prior to that tumble. The ascending 20-day moving average has since moved in as support, though, and the equity appears tto be attempting another run higher. At last check, ROKU was up 0.9% to trade at $435.19.
