Max Linear Stock
MaxLinear stock rose 3.3% to 38.33 last week, including a 5.8% jump on Friday. That’s just under the 38.81 buy-point of the seven-week consolidation. Over the past two weeks, bullish days have been higher than the lows.
MXL stock RS streak is close to record high.
The 5G chip maker posted explosive growth in the most recent quarter: profits rose 144% versus sales growth of 178%.
Qorvo stock jumped 4.8% on Friday to 179.39, turning a weekly loss into a gain of 1.9%. Friday’s bounce off the 50 days / 10 week line also pushed the QRVO stock above the 21 day line and even the edge of the sloping trend line down. Investors can buy the Apple iPhone chip supplier here or wait for more strength to clear the downtrend.
Qorvo stock is operating on the base with a potential of 191.93 official buy points. It needs another week to get a flat base, although the 15.01% hair is very deep. Investors may want to initiate a position at least from a 10-week line or trend line. QRVO stock has made strong gains over the past few months but had a tendency to rally and then pull back to the top of the previous consolidation before bouncing back.
While Qorvo stock had a strong week, major customer Apple did not. Apple shares fell 4.1%, closing 1.9% below the 10-week streak.

Tesla shares fell 4.3% last week, at 781.30. Shares bounced off the 50-day streak on Wednesday – as Cathy Wood of Ark Funds expressed increased “confidence” in Tesla stock, saying it was buying more shares. But TSLA stock ended the week just below the 10-week streak.
Earlier this month, this column reviewed a file Taurus stock case Tesla From a technical point of view. All these conditions still exist and have improved in some ways. TSLA stock rebound from the 50 days / 10 week line may provide a buying opportunity, but investors may want to wait to see if TSLA stock can recover its now-declining price for 21 days. As Tesla continues to move sideways, the downward sloping potential trend line becomes less steep. Also, if Tesla starts to rebound, it will soon have a new base.
But what is the bear’s condition for Tesla from a technical standpoint? Well, it’s been lagging behind the market for the past few weeks, which isn’t a big deal yet. The speculative names are facing some pressure, and TSLA has seen a massive hit. Analysts’ price targets on Tesla stock place heroic assumptions about the company’s sales, autonomous prospects and much more for the next decade.
TSLA stock is hitting the resistance at the 21-day line, at least for now.
Keep in mind that a 50 days / 10 week streak test is a test. A successful test may provide a new buying opportunity, but failure may lead to a sell signal.
If TSLA stock declines decisively through the 50 days / 10 week line, what is the next support area? Maybe it’s 695, the price at which Tesla entered the S&P 500. Beyond that, you are looking at the previous base high of around 500. The 200-day streak is now around 450, not far from the November breakout buy point at 466.
All of this would be a feature of TSLA stock, especially if the market falls into a correction. Even on the massive run from late 2019, Tesla stocks had some deep rules.
So if investors buy Tesla shares at or near these levels, price that further away from the 10-week line and be prepared to sell. The critical breakout could be a signal for long-term investors to take more profits.
Tesla is arguably the most important stock in the market rally. It is the ultimate story share, with massive market capitalization. Connectivity options helped support its operation for 2020. Ark Funds is a major investor and champion in Tesla stocks. The EV maker bought $ 1.5 billion worth of energy-hungry bitcoin.
If Tesla identifies a major high, this could trigger or coincide with the top of the large stock market.
Stock market analysis
Last week, the Nasdaq saw a slight pullback, finding support where you’d expect it at the 21-day line. Has the retreat or rotation ended with speculative growth? Friday’s lackluster move, with the Nasdaq index closing near session lows, was not an inspiration.
If the stock market recovers quickly, how much can it play? The Nasdaq index closed on Friday 5.1% above its 50-day moving average. This isn’t as stretchy, but it’s not far from being so again.
Meanwhile, other indicators continue to flash warning signs. Debt margin increased 42% in January versus a year earlier. This is the largest number since late 2007, although it is still below its 55% annual gain associated with major markets. However, the rise of leveraged ETFs and the increasing use of call options indicate that an investor’s leverage is much higher than margin debt alone. Also, year-on-year debt margin comparisons will become easier in February and March, as investors walked out during the coronavirus crash.
All this leverage for investors, fueled by Fed policy, stimulus checks and millions of Americans stranded home in an era of fee-free trading, helped drive the massive recovery in the stock market. But if the market has prominent Correction, this could lead to a significant decrease in leverage, leading to further selling.
For the time being, the stock market rally still looks strong. Over the past 10 months, withdrawals have generally been shallow and short-lived. Even the two-month correction last fall was relatively modest regarding the correction. But at some point, the stock market rally will turn into a major correction or bear market. Enjoy this stock market rally, but be disciplined and prepare for a change of character.
