Apple did not disappoint and is currently trading at $103.60 in the pre-market, up from yesterday’s closing price of $96.67. This is a massive move for a stock with Apple’s huge market capitalization.

During yesterday’s session, Semiconductor Devices was once again the leading group. Analog Devices is acquiring Linear Technology for $14.8 billion dollars which gave a huge boost to a group that has been strong for several weeks. 29 of the 30 stocks in the SOX were up on the day, and with the buyout of Linear Technology, the SOX will have to contain a new member.

The Top 50 GIR list was once again dominated by Semiconductor Devices stocks. This group began to appear in the Stocks and Groups Moving to the Upside SmartGroup back on July 8th as the SOX generated an Effort to Rise VPA flag, and the group has not looked back.


The indexes were surprisingly strong yesterday on what felt like a nothing day. The NASDAQ Composite, the SP 400 and the SP 600 all generated Pocket Pivots with the Comp breaking into new higher territory and the other indexes closing near the top of their daily trading ranges.
