  • kt4000: Patience is a virtue - unless prices are coming in where I want them..... bought $GOOGL below 1100, $PYPL below 81, $MMP and $AMAT at levels I wanted. The only thing not working the way I thought are my Bank Holding Cos.
  • champ: @woodman $LRCX #BreakOut ----- Need to watch the markets....on a strong market most all stocks will follow....also watching $KLAC, $AMAT and $AAPL for direction.
  • BobbyG: $AMAT making some noise today too. $SMH
  • woodman: @champ $LRCX $KLAC $AMAT $AAPL #BreakOut - I bought some $IPGP this morning with the $LRCX $$. It's been in consolidation but looks like it may want to move higher. The BBs probably need to come in a little more next week.
  • champ: $AMAT @ $59.50 ...New ATH...could BreakOut even more...its rolling and I'm long.
  • BobbyG: @champ $AMAT The semiconductor space is killing it. $NVDA $MU too.
  • woodman: @BobbyG $AMAT $NVDA $MU - Look at $ICHR
  • BobbyG: @woodman $AMAT $NVDA $MU $ICHR Wow 8% and climbing...Too bad option liquidity is poor.
  • Nepenthe: @champ $AMAT $TEAM Thanks for that. In an IBD article last night they had a buy point of 58.83. I dipped this morning, and added after I got confirmation from your post. $TEAM still inches up along the upper BB's though I continue to be wary; but then I'm always wary. Cheers.
  • Nepenthe: @champ $AMAT Sorry, but I meant to add that I see the ATH as 60.89, 11/17, and a point of possible resistance. And should it break above I'll add more. Does that sound sound?
  • champ: @Nepenthe $AMAT --- Never a problem, anytime. Yes, that sounds like a solid plan but we always need to keep a eye on the markets... for directions, when making a add, on any stock. The positive news that @woodman reported on, this morning, is also positive for this stock. This should also be a strong buy and hold, for 2018. LOL
  • woodman: $LRCX and $AMAT still working well after bottoming. $MU moving up through some chop.
  • champ: @woodman $LRCX $AMAT $MU ---- Yes, #Day-7....extremely strong.
  • grcjr: $AMAT very nice move this morning. Added a nibble early on.
  • issues: I am looking at $AMAT as a possible buy but I can't remember what someone said about it. Did the chart compare with another one. I checked my notes but can't find what other one it was compared to.
  • Workinman: @issues $AMAT $LRCX is the ticker you may be referring to.
  • bwcarnation1: @issues $AMAT I was thinking it was $MU cuz of $AMAT earnings it bodes well for $MU...but I could be wrong
  • issues: @Workinman $AMAT $LRCX right! Thank you
  • issues: @bwcarnation1 $AMAT $MU Thanks!
  • woodman: $LRCX - I bought this yesterday. It is forming a doji/long hammer today. Still under the 50 day, though $AMAT (which appears to have reported decently yesterday) is moving through the 50 today so perhaps that bodes well for LRCX. Regardless of their spots on the chart relative to their 50 days, both are up about the same off their recent pullback bottoms. Note, LRCX reported on 1/24, so that's out of the way.
  • issues: @woodman $LRCX $AMAT Could this be a phase 1, turning back down for phase 2?
  • woodman: $LRCX $AMAT big moves off/out of the 200 day area.
  • grcjr: $AMAT earnings after the close.
  • woodman: @debeers @bRobert - $LRCX #semiconductors - Hopefully LRCX will lift semiconductors tomorrow, but the sector looks toppy. That said, I'm long $LRCX, $AMAT, and $IPGP (though I did sell half my IPGP today). Speaking of semis, $ESIO (earnings 1/31 amc) is coming back to a support area (old resistance). No position in ESIO currently, but one that I've often been in and is always on my watch list when I am not in it.
  • bRobert: @woodman $LRCX $AMAT $IPGP $ESIO #semiconductors $INTC reports tomorrow ah That may move the sector a bit :)
  • woodman: @bRobert $LRCX $AMAT $IPGP $ESIO $INTC #semiconductors - hmmm, you may be onto something....
  • Forexpro: ...
    William Priest - $OLED, $AMAT, $SBUX, $MLM, $MET

    Oscar Schafer - $CNK, $ORLY, $COMM, $EVTC, $ANIP

    All the best!

  • woodman: @debeers $LRCX $BA $X $WYNN - thanks for your note re LRCX, debeers. I have some $LRCX, as well as $AMAT and $IPGP in the semiconductor equipment-materials space. Surrounding the space, I guess.
  • DragonFly: $LRCX, $AMAT - these guys are frustrating - they are both sitting on the 20dma on the weekly chart so I'm holding for now. Would actually be a good buy point so I don't want to sell - the minute I sell they will start moving up - never fails - be patient
  • tjv821: $amat thou shall not chase stocks
  • JBed: $AMAT raised to strong buy at Needham. $OSTK price target raised to $110 from $85 at DA Davidson.
  • grcjr: $AMAT $INTC - wondering if some of the action in $AMAT is due to something between speculation and truth that $INTC is in the process of taping out new chips. If you want to increase production volume of chips you need more $AMAT $KLAC, and other products.
  • tjv821: $$amat busting out of a squeeze from a uptrending base
  • Bridget: #Notes: $SMH - semis still recovering, $NVDA $AMAT $IPGP $NXPI Cloud Computing up - $NTNX $ANET $CBOE $CME $ICE - hitting new highs Breakouts: $OLED - good volume, new high $FLIR $VIPS $PODD - biotech, makes the leading wearable, tubeless insulin pump for diabetics. $MELI - new high IPOs $AQUA - starting a run higher $CARS - new high, above ave volume
  • JBed: $AMAT coming out of a squeeze on the daily chart, to the upside.
  • Bridget: $SMH saw a gap up today but still seeing resistance at the 50dMA. I'm still have a bearish position on $SMH and $AMAT. Even $MU didn't get much on a bounce today. Watching closely to see if these regain the strength they once had, or if these will roll over for a further pullback correction. $SMH could pull back to $95 before breaking the uptrend on the weekly chart.
  • Ajax4Hire: $SMH = $TSM $INTC $QCOM $MU $NVDA $TXN $AMAT $ASML $AVGO $LRCX $ADI $NXPI $MCHP $SWKS $XLNX $INTC - Intel is hovering above the 50day-MA, seems to be curving back up; or do my eyes deceive me? $TXN - Texas Instruments is in a low volatility, moving sideways plateau; I have a personal affinity for TI, use their stuff whenever I can. $AVGO wants to buy $QCOM who is buying $NXPI. This three-way dance is definitely going to make $NXPI board members rich(er); $AVGO and $QCOM board members talking smack. $AAPL, a big consumer of Broadcom, Qualcomm and NXP silicon may be the big winner. This is my long way around narrowing down to $INTC and $TXN. Buying $INTC 2018-01Jan $44 calls for $0.92; will sell if falls below 50day-MA.
  • woodman: @steve71 $SMM - I was looking at $LRCX and $AMAT and noticed their shooting stars at the 8dEMA. Similar situation. Good luck on your trade.
  • debeers: $AMAT-Ought to be interesting to see how this particular semi acts today since 4 of their Chinese employees were apprehended yesterday afternoon and arrested for selling the firm's secrets to China.NP
  • grcjr: $AMAT moving up this morning. Not found any news.
  • grcjr: $AMAT $NVDA $AMZN $AMT $AAPL $SOXL - Many of the tech's are up a small amount. I'm continuing to trim a bit from the few I have left. I thinking there might not improve until earnings kick back in ... if there are earnings.
  • issues: @woodman $PAYC mouse? My losers today: $AEIS $AMAT $BRKS $WDC. Haven't sold any yet... I know someone will buy them now at their very lowest in years... sold $COST yesterday at $184.20 thanks to you folks here on the Forum... $IBB isn't really down 66%. It must have split 3:1. It was over $300 now just over $100.
  • DrScience: $SMH dragging down the NASDAQ, Stopped out of $AMAT DEC52.50/57.50 BuPS

  • DrScience: $AMAT Yesterday's breakout, pulled back within the BB's this morning. Technically, the stock is still in a 5.8% VS, even with all the failed breakout attempts. I'm thinking the next move may be to try again on Friday, or next week, so bought DEC 57.5 Calls @ 1.78.
  • bRobert: @DrScience $AMAT Great long term holding stock.
  • bsafriet: @champ $LRCX I exited my position in $LRCX way too early and have been watching for an entry. I capitulated today and bought this move up out of congestion. Closed at an all time closing high and was an inside day (ATH set 11/17 inter day @217.00). ...
  • champ: @bsafriet $LRCX $AMAT ---- I like both and I not really concern with China, at this point. I'm concerned about our markets because of the Tax Reform Bill because their are 6 Senators, on the fence and if 3 announce, that they will vote no, the bill will not go to the floor for a vote and if they pull the vote, the markets could drop over 1,000 points or more and I believe it will drop hard and fast, if that happens. However, this week should be all right. Its next week when the bill goes to the floor for debate and thats when the noise, will start and the risk level will be extremely high. I did not sell any positions but I did take profits on 2 Spec positions on the OPEN...$ULTA and $CMG but watching for re-entry, if or when it happens but it might not.
  • grcjr: $SOXL $SQ $MU $WDC $AMAT $AAPL, $INTC several more, $AMT - Followup to my post yesterday, all up today (in % order) $SOXL is up 3.49% at this time, the largest of those on my watch list. All of the roughly 30 tickers on my Tech list are positive today, even $AMT (perhaps not really tech but I put it here anyway). Tough to buy, great to hold. Or is it? Perhaps a time to take some profits? Tightening my stops.
  • bRobert: $AMAT . $VMW Added leap calls VMW high short interest
  • grcjr: @ROSEY $NVDA - Welcome back. I have not been following $SMH but have some $SOXL (somewhat similar to your $SMH as well as $AMAT, $NVDA, $MU, $SWKS, $INTC, $QCOM. I'm using $SOXL as my savings account ... safe place to put money that is not currently in a specific ticker. I've attached a chart ... $SOXL is the best over the past 6 months! $MU second, $NVDA third.
  • Bridget: #Notes: $CME $CBOE $ICE - all moving higher $HD - breakout on squeeze. $LOW reports earnings tomorrow morning $VEEV - starting to break out of squeeze.

  • vpsmack555: $AMAT Great earnings report...opening pop and a fizzle...I'm not great at mining earnings reports...anyone see something in there that would cause the fizzle?
  • bsafriet: @vpsmack555 $AMAT I couldn’t find anything in the report and c/r call that was negative. I sold my position yesterday just before the close @58.88 and bought back today at $58.10. $AMAT never has been a crowd favorite, tends to be a slow move ...
  • vpsmack555: @bsafriet $AMAT Thanks for the input...held a small position over earnings that I bought @ 52.78 ...should have been adding to it along the way...like the company but was a little worried over it's first hours action today
  • Bridget: #Notes: $XRT - big up day for once with $ROST $ANF $WMT $FL all moving higher after earnings. $ULTA $FIVE $OLLI and $LULU also moving higher $XLY - also breaking out to a new high $XOP - seems to have found a bottom after this sell off $TSCO - coming out of a cup and handle $KR - coming out of this base going into earnings $WGO $THO - breaking higher $NTES - huge move on increasing volume $CGNX - is this on the growth stock list? $MAR - working $PVH - breakout, ER on 11/30 $URI - new high on volume $CHRW - shot across the bow $CMI - back down at the 200dMA $AMAT $LRCX - failed breakouts $COPA - alert at $134.5 $GOOS - ipo hitting new highs

  • thehook1: @Bs7518 $AMAT BTW they report tonite if u didn't know
  • champ: $AMAT if your not in this stock from yesterday, its too late for entry, if you want to hold a position, you need to buy... right before the close.
  • Bridget: #Notes: Earnings after close: $ROST $AMAT $XLP - back up at resistance, watch for a rollover $XLY - new high $SOCL - new high $WMT - gap and run to $100, will we see some selling here? $BBY - still in the channel $SJM - breakout and filling the gap $LRCX - breakout $RHT - breakout $CTRL - new high $WB - running higher, this is working $BAX - in a squeeze at all time highs $BA - in a tight squeeze $CTSH - in a squeeze $ABT - in a squeeze, alert at $57 $VIPS - breaking out of this base right before earnings $KR - breaking out of a base, ER on 11/30 $SGH - IPO breaking out, almost to new high $GOOS - IPO, phase 3
  • grcjr: $AMAT on my watch list. Been consolidating for over 3 weeks just below the multi year (all time?) high. In an incredibly tight VS.

  • grcjr: $AMAT been in consolidation beginning to squeeze near the all time high. Earnings "expected" 11/16 after the close. The 50dma could spend some time catching up. Have alert set for a break out and a break down.
  • Sluggo: $AMAT $NTNX $PYPL $HON $AAPL $V $HFC @Dan welcome back! I read your morning email and couldn't believe how much we think alike now. That is due to me paying attention and taking notes every night. I have been under your tutelage for a few years now. I avoided some big losses by selling some positions either altogether or sold half position before Earnings. Some examples? $KEM sold it at the top, $CC sold it at the top, $RTN sold it at top. Thanks for all you do for us!
  • Sluggo: $CC $KEM $CBOE $MZOR $SQ $ALRM $V $PYPL $SEDG $AMAT $NTNX $CC solid uptrend no pullback on down day $KEM solid uptrend at good buy point 5 P/E $CBOE best in a bad neighborhood - at 20d strong on a bad market day $MZOR bounce off the 20d in a hammer $SQ in a strong cons above the 20d $ALRM sold half my position today - strong but look at $CTRL $SEDG $TAN is strong now. low risk buy pt $AMAT still extended but working like $LRCX $NTNX strong on a weak day but still extended $V felt so confident that I held whole position through E today - works!

  • issues: @DAN $NVDA $WYNN I would like to add to $AMAT. Where would be a good place to add?
  • DAN: @issues $NVDA $WYNN $AMAT Not sure what your intention is on AMAT (long term "investment"...or just a short term trade). AMAT looks pretty strong to me. 4 days of lower closes...but very very minimal after the run it had. I don't think this is a good time to add to AMAT. If it pulls back more, you'll get a better cost basis. If it instead breaks out, that's only about 2% higher than the current price. So you're not giving up much by waiting for a safer trade. Hope that helps. --DAN
  • Sluggo: $ALRM $RTN $MZOR $SQ $HON $CBOE $OSUR $PYPL $V $AMAT These are the 10 stocks I currently hold and have held for a while. They are all extended at the current time, but some like $AMAT are close to a buy point. I do have another job, so I am late in reporting these. I apologize for that, but will try to let you guys know sooner when they hit their breakout buy points. Just put them on a watch list for now with a better entry alert notated.
  • DAN: @Sluggo $ALRM $RTN $MZOR $SQ $HON $CBOE $OSUR $PYPL $V $AMAT Sluggo, thanks for posting that list of holdings. Those are all really great stocks with super chart patterns -- higher highs and lows...and close to or at new highs. Awesome job!!!
  • Sluggo: @DAN $ALRM $RTN $MZOR $SQ $HON $CBOE $OSUR $PYPL $V $AMAT Thanks, Dan...I owe it all to you and making a lot of my own mistakes over the years. I probably had every stock service (wont name them) that didn't do diddly for me since 2000. It's the old adage about giving a man a fish and teaching him how to fish. Kudos back at ya!
  • DAN: @Sluggo $ALRM $RTN $MZOR $SQ $HON $CBOE $OSUR $PYPL $V $AMAT Thanks for telling me that, Sluggo. Makes me feel really good about the work that I (and we) do here. Funny -- I was just talking to someone last night about what I do and I said that it really is a grind. Every day focusing on the market unless "life" gets in the way -- as it has a lot this year. We were chatting about how long I planned to keep doing it, and I said that, every once in a while, I'll hear from someone who tells me that I've really changed their trading behavior and results for the better. And that's what keeps me getting up before 5 am each morning. So thanks for being that guy today. Needed to hear it...and congratulations for learning a little something about fishing! $$$ DAN
  • Sluggo: @DAN $ALRM $RTN $MZOR $SQ $HON $CBOE $OSUR $PYPL $V $AMAT My pleasure, Dan. You are doing a great service for us all and I hope you continue doing what you are doing. As I said, I am not speaking out of my hat (whatever that means). I have used a ton of reputable services over the years and you are the best. Don't leave us! You and Aragorn, Bridget, Woodman and the rest are needed for all of us to learn and know there is someone else who is trading and helping. As you have said, trading is a lonely business.
  • woodman: @Sluggo $ALRM $RTN $MZOR $SQ $HON $CBOE $OSUR $PYPL $V $AMAT - it takes a while. I've learned from all of those you've mentioned.

  • ag1: I'm looking to add to my $AMAT position if it breaks through $46 on some volume. The following is at: http://electroiq.com/blog/2017/09/fab-equipment-spending-breaking-industry-records/ Fab equipment spending breaking industry records The latest update to the World Fab Forecast report, published on September 5, 2017 by SEMI, again reveals record spending for fab equipment. Out of the 296 Front End facilities and lines tracked by SEMI, the report shows 30 facilities and lines with over $500 million in fab equipment spending. 2017 fab equipment spending (new and refurbished) is expected to increase by 37 percent, reaching a new annual spending record of about US$55 billion. The SEMI World Fab Forecast also forecasts that in 2018, fab equipment spending will increase even more, another 5 percent, for another record high of about $58 billion. The last record spending was in 2011 with about $40 billion. The spending in 2017 is now expected to top that by about $15 billion.
