14:33 EDTAMATApplied Materials technical remarks before results
The shares have outperformed the broader averages in the last three months, trading up over 7%. We need to pull back to a longer time frame to get a clearer idea of the levels that could impact price following earnings. The most critical level is on the upside at $23. This area has been touched several times since May, but there hasn't been a strong enough fundamental catalyst to push the shares higher. If the news is stronger than already bullish expectations for the shares, a breakout above $23 would seem very likely. The 52-week high at $23.64 would also likely be taken out. Next resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $24.32 and $25.94. The latter level hasn't been seen in over ten years. If the news isn't up to bullish expectations then the $21 level would be a first probable downside test. The $20 and $19 areas would be additional downside objectives with $19 having been important support over the course of the year.
