Tech Pullback Presents Buying Opportunity On Lam Research (NASDAQ:LRCX)

The tech sector has been trending lower since the beginning of September and finally saw a gain in the past week, halting a three-week losing streak. Lam Research (LRCX) started falling a little earlier and ended up falling for six weeks, until it bounced back two weeks ago and then really jumped this past week. Looking at the weekly chart for the stock, the drop seems to have stopped at the 52-week moving average.

Looking at the chart a little more closely, I saw a trend channel of sorts. The lows from late 2018 and in the middle of 2019 connect with the recent low. The drop and recovery from February through May took the stock out of the channel, but that period in the market was somewhat of a black swan event. We also see that the highs from July ’18, February ’20, and August ’20 all connect to

The 2020 Taiwan Innotech Expo Sustainability Pavilion Presents the Circular Technology Island

With the increasing depletion of the earth’s resources, countries worldwide are more determined about green industrial policies. The European Commission adopted the New Circular Economy Action Plan this March. The UK, Japan, and China will draw up a “marine pollution map” in response to the “marine plastic crisis.” These show that the green industry has become a major field of study for human survival and reducing resource consumption. Therefore, the “Sustainability Pavilion” of the “2020 Taiwan Innotech Expo” will focus on the green industrial chain. The core values are “sustainable living,” “sustainable energy,” and “sustainable resources” tied in with “new agriculture,” “green energy technology,” “circular economy,” and “workplace safety” that reflect the four aspects of life. The pavilion will present more than one hundred technologies that can build a sustainable home in the next ten to twenty years.
