Company Description

Why We Like It:
AMAT is in the technology sector. The company makes equipment and software for the semiconductor, flat-panel display, and solar photovoltaic (PV) industries.

The stock has been showing relative strength outperforming the market both last year and this year. Traders bought the dip at its 10-dma and now AMAT is poised to hit new multi-year highs.

The March 21st intraday high was $20.81. I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $20.85. Plan on exiting positions prior to earnings on May 15th.

Trigger @ $20.85

Suggested Position: buy AMAT stock @ (trigger)
