Chart of the Day: Applied Materials (AMAT)

NASDAQ: AMAT | Applied Materials, Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

AMAT – A rising trendline has formed on Applied Material’s (AMAT) chart.

For the past four months, the price of Applied Material’s (AMAT) shares have been steadily rising and a trendline has formed on its chart.

AMAT is one of the world’s largest suppliers of semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The company has been the industry leader for over 20 years. Strong demand in semiconductor equipment should fuel growth for the foreseeable future.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of AMAT below with added notations.  You’ll see I highlighted the trendline of support in blue:

Any 2 points can start a trend line, but it’s the 3rd test and beyond that confirm its relevance. As you can see, AMAT has tested the trendline 7 times.

If AMAT were to trade below the trendline, a trader could initiate a short position with the expectation of a breakdown in the price of the stock.

AMAT will release its next earnings report on August 14th.  So be mindful of that date as earnings reports often create volatility.

Have a good trading day!

Good luck!
