Microchip names are leading the technology sector, and the old stalwart Micron Technology is in front of the pack. Its stock has been extremely strong since bottoming out just over two months ago.

The low at the beginning of August was notable; the elevated volume signaled a capitulation. Enter the big institutional buyers, who started to gobble up the stock as the rest of the market just stood around waiting for a market correction (note the powerful money flow at the bottom of the chart).

Now it’s up 50%, and after stellar earnings came out last month, it has some strong momentum. Is this move big enough to kill off the long-term buyers? Not in this bull market. Just look at the steep channel where the stock has been uber strong. It is also backed by fantastic relative strength and a slope in the MACD that is enviable.

I like Micron for even higher prices into the end of the year – perhaps near the 50 level.
