Why We Like It:
Technology stocks continue to perform well. I like VECO as a bullish candidate because the trend is up but shares don't look so overbought. The stock broke out over significant resistance about eight days ago. Since that time it has been consolidating sideways. Traders bought the dip on Friday and now VECO is poised to rally higher. I am suggesting small bullish positions now. Our target is $44.00. FYI: The Point & Figure chart is bullish with a $55 target.

Suggested Position: VECO stock @ 39.88(?)
