Broadcom: Pre-Earnings Pullback into Bullish Breakout

NASDAQ:AVGO   BROADCOM INC
AVGO makes networking semiconductors and other products in so many household brands of consumer equipment, and I was floored to see how bad of a beating they took with the May trade war fear correction. After this consolidation, Broadcom's stock price now has room to bounce out of earnings with a healthy upside potential to make up for ground lost to set new highs. Depending on how the market reacts to earnings tomorrow night, this has the potential to have a strong growth tech upside. The contract renewal with Apple Computers for components is also going to be a major highlight of that earnings call, too.

The price just rose to ping-pong a little between the 50 and 200 day averages with some upward momentum to keep going. The technicals have RSI showing a slow cool off from last week's rally without much of a loss but still bullish above 50 with lots of upside potential. MACD has crossed over the signal line for a bullish reversal, but is still negative showing that a coming rally may still be volatile until it takes off under full steam. Rate of change is breaking positive and sloping upward in a technical trend reversal. ADX is also flashing a possible sharp trend reversal with DI+ just rising over DI- with some consolidation action that will definitely break on earnings . I also see a very narrow cup and handle that is probably only going to last one or two more days at max before shooting for the sky.

If this plays out the way I think it can, money will start to pour into the stock in the morning as investors seeking the earnings payout buy this short consolidation (with the rest of the S&P 500 ) to front-run the crowd. If their earnings call is strong, focuses on the Apple news, and calms fears of the US-China trade dispute, this will be very profitable very quickly.
Trade closed manually: Down 8.5% after hours and taking the entire semiconductor industry down with it.
