Micron Technology Buy On Weakness Trade Is On Like Donkey Kong

The stock of Micron Technology looks like a classic buy on weakness trade after the company reported excellent earnings and revenue beats but the stock sold off big time. The profit taking seems a bit extreme which may have caused some panic selling.

Micron Technology reported Q3 revenue rising 20% from the prior quarter, and 92% from the prior-year period, to $5.57 billion, yielding EPS of $1.62. Analysts had forecast $5.4 billion in revenue, and $1.52 per share in net income.

Micron President and CEO Sanjay Mehrotra said, “Micron delivered strong operational performance in the third quarter with free cash flow nearly double last quarter, which enabled us to retire $1 billion in debt. Our results reflect solid execution of our cost reduction plans and ongoing favorable industry supply and demand dynamics. The global trends taking shape today, including machine learning and big data analytics, are exciting and create significant opportunities for Micron. We are focused on positioning the company to realize these opportunities by investing in technology and products while also strengthening our balance sheet.”

Compared to an average industry Price/Earning Ratio of 25.63, Micron Technology is valuated rather cheaply. On top of this MU is cheaper than 86% of the companies listed in the same industry.

Micron Technology Stock Chart

Large players really dumped a lot of MU shares which is a warning sign. The Twiggs Money Flow also went negative which is another warning sign. I would wait before taking an entry in this stock. Look for some consolidation first so that you’re not trying to catch a falling knife. You can also use the Twiggs Money Flow as a signal on when to go long. When the Twiggs Money Flow breaks back above the zero line, and the large players volume starts rising, that’s the buy signal.
