Chart of the Day: NXP Semiconductors (NXPI)

NASDAQ: NXPI | NXP Semiconductors N.V. News, Ratings, and Charts

NXPI – NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) rides the line higher.

Since NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) bottomed on March 23rd of this year, it has been steadily rising and has formed a trendline.

NXPI is a leading supplier of high-performance mixed-signal products which includes self-driving and sensor equipment used in certain automobiles. NXPI also provides mobile and communications infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IOT).

The company recently reported first-quarter revenue of $2 billion. The company should benefit from the rollout of 5G networks and the adoption of mobile payments in 2020. And last week, KeyBanc raised its price target for NXPI from $120 to $130.

In the past few months, tech stocks have shown impressive strength.  The Nasdaq, the tech-heavy index, is actually not only at 52-week highs but also trading at all-time highs.

So it’s not surprising that NXPI has doubled in price since hitting its 52 week low just a few months ago.

As you can see in the chart below, NXPI has formed a clear trendline of support (blue) as shares have been rising.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of NXPI below with my added notations:

Chart of NXPI provided by TradingView 

Any 2 points can start a trend line but the more times the stock tests the trendline, the more relevant it becomes.  In this case NXPI has traded near or at it’s trend line 6 times.  

There are 2 ways to use a trendline to trade.  The first is “buy the dip.”  If you think the stock is strong and it has a pullback, you could buy the stock near the trendline.  In this scenario, we believe there is a good chance the stock will bounce off the trendline and you’ll see a profitable trade. 

The second way to make a trade using a trendline of support, is to wait patiently for the stock to break it’s trendline support to the downside.  If/when it does, initiate a short position with the assumption that there will be a breakdown.  

Have a good trading day!

Good luck!
