SANM Technical Analysis


SANM opened trading yesterday at $36.70 which was down from the previous day’s trading close of $36.80. SANM closed trading yesterday at $37.25 and spiked up after market to $41.20, equivalent to a 10% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that the last time SANM traded above these levels we have to go all the way back to the month of January 2005 when it traded at highs of $52.08.

Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up SANM had already been in an overall upward trend dating back to November 4th, 2016 when it traded at $28.05. SANM has a float of 72.2 million shares and traded 1.65 times the normal daily trading volume on Monday. For trading purposes, I would like to see SANM open trading on Tuesday above $40.00 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.50 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up. Check out these links for more information on Warrior Trading and the penny stock trading strategies we implement in their chat room!
