Western Digital, a big player in data storage, has been steadily climbing higher all year long. It even tagged a new all-time high on Tuesday, May 30. This new action comes on the heels of robust earnings last month, when the stock pulled down to test a trend line. It now looks ready to reach the century mark (100).
In the chart below, look at the money flow in the bottom pane. It shows very strong buying interest since reversing in late March. The MACD is about to cross and confirm a strong buy signal, while the apex of the triangle on the price chart was resolved resoundingly to the bullish side. I like the strong turnover as well. When a stock hits new highs, buyers usually hesitate – but not in this case. Western Digital is looking at higher prices ahead, and if they end up purchasing Toshiba (they’ve offered $17 billion for it), the sky is the limit.
