Skyworks Solutions Inc (NASDAQ: SWKS) finished −$1.56 (0.85%) down when trading halted on the stock market on Tuesday and is down a total of -$5.42 (-2.90%) over the last five trading days.
Nevertheless, the firm is expected to generate $1.3 billion in revenue for the current fiscal quarter, according to Zacks Investment Research. In comparison, during the same period last year, Skyworks Solutions recorded $956.8 million in sales – meaning this would be a 35.9% increase from the previous year if it meets the forecast.
The long-term trend in the stock market looks positive according to indications, although the short-term trend at the moment appears to be neutral.
SWKS has traded in a broad range of $173.30 – $186.97 during the past month, and the price has recently been stabilizing in the center of this range, which may provide a nice entry point for those looking to invest, but also there is some resistance found above.
For example, the first area of resistance ranges from $181.77 to $186.28; this zone is formed by a combination of multiple trend lines and important moving averages in multiple time frames. Conversely, support at $179.71 from a trend line in the daily time frame is also clear.
Recently, we’ve seen a decrease in volatility and stabilization of pricing, which is encouraging to observe for a good setup opportunity. As mentioned, a support zone of $179.71 exists below the present price; therefore, traders might look to put a stop order below this zone.
