Amphenol Corp. (APH) is a leading designer and manufacturer of electrical, electronic, and fiber-optic connectors and interconnect systems, sensors, and cable. The company sells into a broad array of industries, including the automotive, industrial, communications, military, and mobile device markets.

APH is benefiting from a stable industrial end-market and a positive military spending environment. Its efforts in developing high-speed and power products should help the firm gain customers in the IT data communications space.

APH has been mostly trading sideways over the past few months, most recently stalling beneath the $69 level (red). That mark is also preventing the stock from hitting new 52-week highs. A solid close above that $69 level should lead to much higher prices for the stock.

APH has a 52-week resistance at $69. The possible long position on the stock would be on a breakout above that level with a stop placed under it.
