    Estimates sales raising 40% to $3.3B marking fastest top line growth in 5+ years. This is going to be good.

    This may be a buying opportunity (down 3% AH)

    A good bit of buying the last few days, caused it to make little gaps the last couple days that have now been filled

    See if it bounces from 29.15, a confluence of a Fib retracement and the lower Bollinger Band. There will be more volume tomorrow.

    Here's the ER:
    So revenue missed (that excuse will be used to explain the AH drop). But EPS is 2.3-times what it was last year, on 39% sales growth. And the kicker: guidance is above estimates.

    Looks like a potential sell here, maybe puts.

    Right on the resistance level today, this could use a pull back next week

    Applied Materials Inc. AMAT, +0.40% makes equipment used to fabricate semiconductors.
    This company is exposed to a growing area of the economy, there’s better value to be found in large-cap computer hardware manufacturers than in tech services companies right now.

    After building cause in a series of clustered closes centering around $56 or so, AMAT got over and held its April 2000 high of $57.50 for several days but failed to make any further progress. Now it appears like it is testing those clustered closes again. The last stepping-stone (re-accumulation) trading range showed me a target of $64. It hit almost $61 on the last rally.

    So this thing has been a 4-bagger in the course of the last couple years. It may need a significant rest now that it has hit its all-time high from the dotcom bubble days. However, after the 2000 crash, this built cause for 13 years, from Oct 2002 to Oct 2015. Ultimately, I expect it goes much higher; multiples higher.

    Edit: In my experience, because it is a purveyor of machinery to the semi industry, it has proved to be a leader; a canary in the coal mine.

    I agree, AMAT has been doing pretty nice lately.
