What the Charts Say

Bullish on Linear Technology Add to ...

Linear Technology Corp. traded in a large triangle pattern for two years (dotted lines). The stock had a breakout from this formation earlier this year (A), pulled back to its rising 40-week moving average (40wMA) and to the long-term rising trend-line (dashed line - B) and resumed the up-trend as it reached a recent high of $41.39 (U.S.) (C). A minor pullback may occur, but only a decline below about $36 would be negative.
