- bsafriet: $CGNX at ATH today. One of my “pets” in the optical group. Besides the obvious, $NOVT $IIVI $AXTI and $ESIO are in play in my trading account.
- bnnybklyn: $AXTI looking good
- woodman: @bnnybklyn $AXTI - Semis are doing nicely today. I'm still holding AXTI and $BRKS. Added to $ESIO yesterday.
- woodman: $AXTI $BRKS still edging up.
- bsafriet: @woodman $AXTI $BRKS Entered $AXTI at the open, long stock.
- woodman: @bsafriet $AXTI $BRKS - I added to both this morning.
- woodman: $AXTI similar to $POWI - i.e. moving out of a squeeze.
- woodman: $AXTI - bought this morning.
- woodman: #Tech - some charts of interest: As #Risk-Reward trades among tech stocks on my watchlists (due to support/where you can put a stop): $AXTI $CAMT $AMD $POWI $MPWR Others on my tech list with interesting charts: $NVDA $NOVT $STM (multi top cup and handle) $MCHP $ORBK $EXTR (made the cup but not really a handle yet) $KEM (hard to buy b/c doesn't pullback much)
- bsafriet: $AAOI $IPGP $IIVI $AXTI $ESIO $AAOI getting hammered today. Back at post earnings low (ouch). Watching the rest and looking for the news driving the move in $ESIO today post earnings.
- bsafriet: $AXTI. $AXTI. Reported last night beating consensus estimates and guiding up. Opened at $8.10, hod at $8.90, during the flash crash it hit $8.05 and has reversed to hit $8.60 before sagging to $8.55. Conference call very positive. Long stock with an entry at $6.50.

- bsafriet: @champ $BAC $C $WFC $DB #Trading #Spec #Positions #Economic #Non-Farm #Additional Why not take partial profits in your long positions in. $BAC and $C and let the rest ride (play with the house's money)? I'm long $MS, $C and $JPM and thinking about a ...
- bnnybklyn: @Bridget #newbie $AXTI is this a cup and handle, if so, how convincing ?
- Bridget: @bnnybklyn $AXTI #newbie I see what you are referring to. But usually with cup and handle you want the top of the cup to be a recent high. The recent high is actually $8, so while I do think it looks likely to get back up to that level, you will still find resistance there. A cup and handle that lead to "blue skies" is most preferred.
- bnnybklyn: @Bridget $AXTI #newbie excellent, thank you
- woodman: Some #Semiconductors of interest to me: $MPWR $MITK $STM (already long STM) $AXTI $MTSI (already long) $AMD
- bnnybklyn: @Bridget @Dan $AXTI coming out of a multi year squeeze. Any views on this as a long term position ? It's been coming out of that squeeze for almost a year now. Don't have much experience with a chart that looks like this. Any knowledge with this type of thing you can share is appreciated. 1/3 position and a 16% profit right now
- bnnybklyn: $AXTI woah !
- JBed: @bnnybklyn $AXTI Nice! Thanks for the heads up.
- woodman: @bsafriet $IIVI - fyi, some other laser/optical I watch: $AXTI (long as of Friday) $ESIO $COHR $BIOL and $LUNA
- bsafriet: @woodman $IIVI $AXTI $ESIO $COHR $BIOL $LUNA Txs again! $COHR 203.13 +5.170, $ESIO 6.69 0.17
- spmeyers: @woodman $IIVI $AXTI $ESIO $COHR $BIOL $LUNA $COHR lookin good today
- woodman: @bsafriet $IIVI $AXTI $ESIO $COHR $BIOL $LUNA The $FNSR that you mentioned in your first post is looking good here.
- woodman: $AXTI $ORBK $MXL $MKSI - I meant to post these that I was watching yesterday for today:
- bnnybklyn: $AXTI on the rebound up over 10% rhrn
- bnnybklyn: $AXTI semi - nice chart, trying to bust through multi year highs.
- bnnybklyn: $AXTI big hit. Anyone own this one ?

- Dave: What's working (or at least not so bad that you run away from like your hair's on fire): $DBA (Volatility #Squeeze!), $STON, $ZAGG (don't like this personally but have to give it kudos for holding in here), $NSR, $ERF, $TSO, $LNG, $AXTI, $BZF, $DTLK, $AAPL, ROC?, $TLT and of course, $SLV, $GLD, $DBP and about any inverse $ETF or derivation thereof. I realize that some of these are subjective, but feel free to add or contest some. btw, I'm long a whopping 2 of these - $SLV and $STON and not full positions on either.
- Dave: Some stocks that are working: HEK, $DTLK, $ERF, $STON, $TSO, $LNG, $AXTI, $DECK, $AAPL, $NSR, $ROC, $CRK, $TLT, $CLNE, $ESV, $LYB, $REE, $MCP, WG. A couple of themes that I see - energy names, clean fuels, and rare earths. Thanks to those posters who have pointed out some of these, also. Other stock suggestions for this list are welcome. This is not to say that "all's fine in the water, jump in" because several of the major indices are sick and up to 80% - 85% of all stocks will follow the prevailing market trend. But these stocks are holding up relatively well, at a minimum, in a very uncertain market.
- archerm: $AXTI - $AXTI got hammered (down 10%) with an analyst's downgrade to hold from buy: "Needham sees several near-term pressure points as it cuts small chip-compound maker AXT (AXTI) to hold from buy. They include the stock nearly quadrupling the past year and rising raw-material costs likely limiting near-term margins. $AXTI down 5.3% premarket to $10.63 . Needham says with it reaching its $11 price target..." Got stopped out at 10.50 and am back in at 10.06 as a 59 minute trade. This could be a good buy point if it bounces here at the 50Day.
- archerm: $AXTI - May be offering a good buy point. It gapped up to over 12 a few days ago and as expected pulled back dramatically. Today it dipped it's toe below $11 ($10.98) and immediately bounced back up. If it stays true to form, it will go back up over 12 on or before earnings (2/22 PM) and stay there. I'd be buying calls if they weren't so thinly traded. Warning: this is a very volatile small cap semi play, and should be considered as a speculative trade.
- richard9f: $AXTI @archerm, I was just looking at how this gapped down but held the trendline from the 1/20 low. I'd like to see it hold a close, or a sustained move, above the 20sma (11.24). As you mention, this is gappy, but the long term uptrend is strong.
- richard9f: $AXTI haganaw1, you can get that info at their website. They did a presentation for Needham in Jan. $TQNT is a small direct customer, so they might be getting hit for that. And even though a long standing US company, their production is in China, so they be getting pulled into the China downdraft too.
- archerm: $AXTI - is breaking out and heading over $12 ahead of earnings on the 22nd. If it stays true to form it will jump to the mid $12s and pull back before a big jump on earnings. They make silicone wafers and are running at capacity. They are bringing a new unit on-line that should keep their growth rate going at their current 50%+ for the next year.
- richard9f: $AXTI Closed outside top BB and a new high after consolidating from mid Jan. Weekly chart has a rising channel from Aug '09. Reports 2/23.
- archerm: $AXTI - If it holds true to form, it will keep going up to 12.70 or 12.80, and then drop back down under 11 (hopefully before earnings). If it stays true to form earnings will catapult it back up over $12 to stay and then consolidate for a few weeks before testing $13.
- archerm: $AXTI - is breaking out of a bull flag to the upside. I expect a quick push from 8.59 to over 9.0 (my short term target is 9.5, long range is 20)
- archerm: $AXTI - Had a nice pullback from $8.99 all time high after a nice volatility #squeeze. Based on past performance, is at a good buy point (anything around $8.50). If it does the expected it may bounce against $9.00 for a while before zooming up to 9.50 with new resistance at 9.00. They had a great conference call - looking for 50% earnings growth this and next year.
- bullmoose: Trimming The Hedges - Trimmed several stocks today including $AXTI, BCSI, $BVN, $C, $HES, $PAL PCX and SBH. Locking in some nice profits. I did make two new purchases: $IPI and I added to my $REE shares. I'm waiting for $EXPE to bounce off support. I'm also liking $BZH, $ROVI and $XRTX, but haven't bought them yet. I have a lot of stocks already and we're bound to have a pullback some time...aren't we? :0]
- bullmoose: $AXTI - I've been having trouble posting so this was meant to get out earlier. It moved up above a bull flag after a volatility breakout. It moved so fast after my alert went off I didn't get my buy point and have raised it.
Other stocks I didn't buy yet that look enticing are $HES, $NBL, CEO, $AXTI, MHS (wish I bought this one right at the open), $MA and many others.
Stocks I trimmed or sold outright include $MCP (closed out what was left at a profit and am looking ...

- archerm: $AXTI - Breakout from #squeeze after earnings - up 10% - doubled its profit, it makes smartphone semiconductor substrates.
- JW: $AXTI I saw this as well. Does one buy here on the pop or wait for the pullback?
- archerm: $AXTI - Here's another low priced stock with great fundamentals for you. They just broke out of a channel, crossed above the magic $5 limit and zoomed up to consolidate right below $6.
