    Stuck in this range

    Seems to be stuck between 14 and 14.50. It has tested the 50 dam twice in the last month or so and bounced back up which is good but it can't break thru 14.50. If it can hold here till earnings with a good report maybe we can get to 15 and hold.

    • No mans land right now.

      Next week's ER will likely move it a bit. Just never know which way with KLIC.

      I may do something with options but unsure if I'll be buying or writing some. Often I let the premium determine that as much as some other simple factors. Because I won't risk more than 1/4 of my holdings or add the equivalent of another 1/4 or 1/5.

      Gotta love KLIC though.

      No-one here constantly posting about a dividend or buyback.

      Bruno hasn't squandered the money on a n aquisition.

      Life is good...

      • Agree KLIC very sound and undervalued. If you like this stock, have you checked out MKSI? They are in similar space, with even better fundamentals (IMO) i.e. the company has a market cap of $1.7B, but 1/3 is in cash and no debt, and cash flow is $80M. They just reported yesterday and beat bottom line by 30%, and yoy top line growth is 45%. If you factor in the cash, forward P/E is around 12.

        If these credibly IT companies like KLIC and MKSI could get a valuation close to some of the in-vogue IT companies (e.g. Facebook, twitter, linkedin, etc.) we would be 4-10X higher.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
