  • Sher: FYI… Options updates (Schwab): $AMAT, $FXI, $GRUB, $PYX

    Some unusual put activity (~3:1 over calls) is being seen in Applied Materials Inc. ($AMAT + $0.06 to $42.39) which is primarily being driven by activity on the June 28th 42.00 put. Volu ...
  • Hans_Schultz1: $AMAT my scan picked this up today and I traded it for a bounce. Picked a good one but unfortunately I sold it for a wash after 25 minutes when it didn’t look like it was working. I have grown in experience today just not in dollars
  • traderbren: $AMAT - primed to move higher. Pushing off the 8ema. Took a starter position yesterday.
  • rachel: ...
    $AMAT – bullish crossover? Yes, this works. Also look at some other semis.
    $AMBA – this also works.
    $DECK – coming out of a well-defined channel. Keep a stop below the 20-day MA.
    $PGNX – really good move today. I would buy ...
  • Vhuante: @Cokeman1959 $INTC I've been looking at $AMAT $ON as semi catch up plays. $AMAT looks like it has room to run
  • bsafriet: $WDC $AMD $INTC $LRCX $AMAT $IPGP All moving extremely well this morning. Long $WDC, $AMD, $INTC, looking to be there for the other three.
  • geotheo: $AMAT $AMBA - Are the semiconductor equipment producers coming back? $AMAT at the 50MA and 200MA. It would be nice if the B-bands were tighter. Minimum this is one to watch. $AMBA an old fav has been trending up for a while. 200MA soon to follow.
  • woodman: #Semiconductor equipment and materials still going: $LRCX $AMAT $UCTT $VECO $ACLS $NANO, for example.
  • woodman: $LRCX $AMAT $UCTT $VECO $ACLS $NANO #Semiconductor - some report soon, so keep that in mind.
  • coldevinc: @woodman $LRCX $AMAT $UCTT $VECO $ACLS $NANO #Semiconductor $VECO 2-11 and UCTT 2 - 20
  • woodman: #Semiconductor equipment/material stocks too: $LRCX $AMAT $UCTT $NANO $VECO $ACLS
  • Bob G: @DAN $RH watched that for first 15 minutes and didn't have the guts to go either way. $AMAT and $ROST turned out to be the right shorts for this rookie.
  • DAN: @Bob G $RH $AMAT $ROST Looks like the Rookie did OK this morning, Bob. Nice job!
  • bigbartabs: $SMH ... after a big jump today, down about 3% from the close. Looks to be $TSM $NVDA $AMD $AMAT contributing the most.
  • woodman: @bigbartabs $SMH $SOXX $SOXL #Semiconductors - good luck, bbt. I'm going to keep watch of the sector. I don't have any semis at this time. The likes of $AMAT and $LRCX still look horrible. $MU a little better but not good.
  • bigbartabs: @woodman $SMH $SOXX $SOXL $AMAT $LRCX $MU #Semiconductors ... as usual, I won't stay long if I'm wrong . If it goes back down to my break even, I may not stay. So far so good... good luck...
  • bwcarnation1: $MU/$AMAT a race to the bottom
  • Wolf: @grcjr $AMAT $NVDA $AMAT #Revenge-trade I know, but I did it anyway. Shorted @ 44.48, covered @ 43.32. Got back most of it.
  • Wolf: @grcjr $AMAT $NVDA BTO small position 8/17 47.50 calls @ 1.31 which I will hold over earnings. When I looked at Fidelity list of competing companies, almost all had beat last earnings. Just a small bet.
  • grcjr: @Wolf $AMAT $NVDA - with the recent $NVDA new product announce I expected more of a run up to earnings. I like $AMAT, the company, but find I generally do not make much money on the ticker. Good indicator on chip makers.
  • grcjr: $AMAT $NVDA both reporting earnings tomorrow after the close. I've been in and out of $AMAT, currently out. I'm a bit long $NVDA and plan to hold it over.
  • stairm01: $AMAT Coming off a support of $45. Long stock.
  • Sluggo: @GOOSE $LRCX $AMAT Kind of a weird reply to the question, but Nancy is fine (you are showing your age) and Mr Bill is still afraid of Sluggo as well (remember that one?) :)
  • issues: I sold $ETSY for a good profit ($43) and am getting nervous about my little lamb $LRCX. It was downgraded with $AMAT and $ASML was upgraded. I have a stop in at $181 for 1/2 position. Where are all you cheerleaders for the lamb? Do any of you other want to tell me how you sold all yours at $196 where I picked up 1/2 shares? Come on now....
  • captron: @issues $ETSY $LRCX $AMAT $ASML debeers was a pretty good cheerleader for $LRCX but don't know where she stands now. I got out back in April when it started down.
  • Sluggo: $LRCX $AMAT The entire Semiconductor Equipment and Materials index is bouncing off the 200d and $LRCX and $AMAT look horrible. What does this bode for the semiconductor stocks? Would love see how anyone else interprets this?
  • bsafriet: @Sluggo $LRCX $AMAT Order flow is down. China?
  • Sluggo: @bsafriet $LRCX $AMAT If that is the case, should we be concerned with chip demand?
  • GOOSE: @Sluggo $LRCX $AMAT How's Nancy? ;>)
  • rachel: ...
    14. $AMAT – we don’t look at many bad charts...but get used to seeing this. Bearish crossover. Support at $50.
    15. SHW – see AMAT.
    Requested Videos
    16. $UPS – No. Look at FDX.
    17. $FDX – Alert $255
    18. $BCC – ...
  • PJMR11: @stairm01 $POT $OC $ULTA $AMAT $AAOI I keep an eye on CRON and CANN. Neither of these "pot" stocks are doing well
  • sierramp: @stairm01 $POT $OC $ULTA $AMAT $AAOI Are you referring to $POTN?
  • stairm01: @sierramp $POT $OC $ULTA $AMAT $AAOI $POTN Yes, sorry! I'll correct post.
  • stairm01: $POTN Crazy little cheap pot stock that has made me a lot of money as a speculative trade, over and over again. Having a real nice day and holding my accounts up along with $OC, $ULTA, $AMAT, $AAOI in a REAL DOWN day in the market.
  • stairm01: @PJMR11 $POT $OC $ULTA $AMAT $AAOI I've been in and out of $CRON and $CANN, but not in lately. I agree, they are not performing. $POTN is easier to hold after it's started a move up. The legalization of Pot news keeps this one active.
  • captron: $AMAT - Looks to be starting on the completion of a W pattern. Started a position today.
  • antfarm: $AMAT Down about 5% in PM. Earnings beat but some one is unhappy.
  • optionswealth: @antfarm $AMAT Not all their numbers beat. Cramer talked about them last night so I'm sure there's a video on it.
  • bigbartabs: $SMH $SOXL ... semiconductors... seems to be all about $AMAT lowering guidance. Getting wacked.
  • stairm01: $AMAT Earnings after hours at 4:00. Long stock with $3 profit on small position. Will hold through earnings.
  • Amykris: @stairm01 $AMAT holding through earnings as well. Good luck
  • issues: @Amykris $AMAT sold AMAT Cramer said they don't do well with reporting.
  • issues: From what I can tell $AMAT went down in AH as expected. glad I sold at $54.24 with a small loss.
  • grcjr: @issues $AMAT - $MU is also down in after hours.
  • baronp0329: @Bilbo $LRCX - $AMAT is down AH due to earnings report causing LRCX to go down too.
  • champ: $AMAT....working
  • issues: @champ $AMAT remember earnings on the 17th Thurs. Cramer said they usually don't report well.... you might sell prior to earnings.
  • champ: $AMAT $LPX -----OUT.....took the $$$$, I'm rotating $$$$ ...but still holding $OSB
  • Robert1965: @bigbartabs $AMAT $MU $LRCX $SMH $SOXL $TECL $TQQQ , Sold $TQQQ 2/3 kept 1/3 average cost 157.28, of sale, cost of last 1/3 152.58, what are you looking for, I was thinking 168.-169. but now I have doubts after $NVDA reported I think it is 4% of $QQQ, Your input is appreciated
  • bigbartabs: @Robert1965 $AMAT $MU $LRCX $SMH $SOXL $TECL $TQQQ $NVDA $QQQ ... I would make your decisions using QQQ and $NDX, since they're the dog... TQQQ is the tail (derivative). Since I have a good profit in my oversized TQQQ position, I will likely keep my stop below the prior day. Probably the same with $SOXL and $TECL. SOXL hurting a bit this morning due to $NVDA.
  • woodman: $AMAT $MU $LRCX all gapped up into the 50 day. $SMH moving through the 50 day a wee bit here.
  • bigbartabs: @woodman $AMAT $MU $LRCX $SMH ... luckly I did quit a bit of buying yesterday, and came into today pretty hot... 137% in. Part of that is a full position of $SOXL. $TECL is another that I have a full position, that pairs up with SOXL and $TQQQ. I have only one position that s more than full... TQQQ, at 150%. I haven't made a buy or sell today... which doesn't happen that often for me.
  • woodman: @bigbartabs $AMAT $MU $LRCX $SMH $SOXL $TECL $TQQQ - excellent job, bbt.
  • woodman: @bigbartabs $AMAT $MU $LRCX $SMH $SOXL $TECL $TQQQ - I have $AMAT $MU and $ON (off rising support drawn from 12/5 and 2/9, but it is messy).
  • woodman: @bigbartabs $AMAT $MU $LRCX $SMH $SOXL $TECL $TQQQ - do you ever look at $ARKK and $ARKW? Tech ETFs. Not 3x, though. I have $ARKK.
  • woodman: $AMAT up through the 200d. I replaced my $LRCX with $AMAT this morning.
  • grcjr: $AAPL $TMUS $S others - if I were $AAPL or one of the other cell phone providers, I'd already be way down the path of the design of their first 5G cell phone. As the 5G standard is STILL not done it might be risky to go much further. I'd be looking a ...
  • issues: @Junior1 Excellent point Junior. I agree that it's a strong possibility with IBD saying we're in a correction. But Champ also made some good observations today. But the economy is good and one of these days the market will reverse back up. This is the last trading day of March, so I'm betting that April will be good.. Then there's sell in "May and go away." Which may not be the case this year. For me, steady as she goes. I am trying to do like Dan and not trading my Long Term Investments. But I keep violating that. I bought/added to theses : $CASA $PYPL $TAL $SMH $SQ $BZUN $AMAT $CNC $NVDA
  • kt4000: Nice Profits this morning from EOD buys Friday $AMAT, $MU, $PYPL, now hedging $SDOW, $SPXS feels like we are starting to turn down again.
  • 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!

  • indigo1948: @Forexpro $XON $MSG $BATRA $MGM $ZBH $CNHI $GCP $PCAR $TXT $ENR $LCRX $HCLP $GTN $ARCC $HOFT $XLE $NTG $BKLN $EWZ $DXJ $EFX $MTN $BFAM $SERV $SHOP $GRUB $OXY $ABBV $MDLZ $MU $WDC $MRVL $ORCL $SNAP $KMX $OEC $OLED $AMAT $SBUX $MLM $MET $CNK $ORLY $COMM $EVTC $ANIP - thank you for the information - interesting choices - $MDLZ has been channeling for about 2 1/2 years and $OXY has a great deal of room to the upside - long both of these.
  • 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
