Aehr Test Systems Stock Shows Large Players Quietly Accumulating

Aehr Test Systems stock has formed a positive divergence between large players volume and the price chart. Large players are accumulating the stock as it has pulled back over the last few days. Before we get to the chart, let’s look at what Aehr does and why this stock could have explosive growth going forward.

Aehr Test Systems Company Profile

Aehr Test was incorporated in the state of California on May 25, 1977 and completed its initial public offering on June 11, 1997. The Company’s common stock trades on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol AEHR.

Aehr Test is a global semiconductor manufacturer. The Company has sales and service operations in the United States, Japan, Germany and Taiwan, and has established a network of distributors and sales representatives in certain key parts of the world. Its corporate headquarters are located in Fremont, California.

Aehr Test Systems is a worldwide supplier of systems for burning-in and testing memory and logic integrated circuits and has an installed base of more than 2,500 systems worldwide. Aehr Test has developed and introduced several innovative products, including the ABTS, FOXTM and MAX systems and the DiePak® carrier. The ABTS system is Aehr Test’s newest system for packaged part test during burn-in for both low-power and high-power logic as well as all common types of memory devices. The FOX system is a full wafer contact test and burn-in system. The MAX system can effectively burn-in and functionally test complex devices, such as digital signal processors, microprocessors, microcontrollers and systems-on-a-chip. The DiePak carrier is a reusable, temporary package that enables IC manufacturers to perform cost-effective final test and burn-in of bare die.

Aehr Test Systems News

On July 12, 2017, Aehr Test Systems announced that it received a follow-on order exceeding $3.8 million for multiple ABTS test and burn-in systems from a leading multi-national manufacturer of advanced logic integrated circuits (ICs) for automotive, embedded processing, digital signal processing and analog applications. The order also includes down payments to lock in delivery dates. The ABTS systems are planned to ship by the end of calendar year 2017.

Mark Allison, Vice President of Sales, said, “We are pleased to receive another follow-on order from this customer, who continues to run at full capacity in their burn-in and test areas. Our ABTS Systems, with their individual temperature control capability for high-power devices, are a key part of this customer’s quality and reliability program for their expanding line of automotive products, and are helping companies that supply devices into the automotive sensor, mobile communications, IC, and Internet of Things markets meet the higher quality and reliability needs of these markets. The ABTS system capabilities, along with our superior customer support, have more than met the expectations of this customer. This has led to a mutually beneficial business relationship resulting in our largest installed base of ABTS systems.”

Aehr appears to be benefiting from the rapid growth in automotive sensor technologies. This includes Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as collision avoidance systems using LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), RADAR or other sensing technologies. Autonomous vehicles use collision avoidance systems to detect obstacles and to navigate safely through dangerous environments. Reliability of the devices in these systems is especially critical for autonomous driving applications so that means manufacturers of ICs in the automotive industry really need the testing services of companies like Aehr Test Systems. This means Aehr Test Systems stock could soar on explosive demand growth for its critical systems testing hardware and software.

Aehr Test Systems Stock

Aehr Test Systems stock looks like a good setup on a Symmetrical Triangle pattern. The Effective Volume study shows large players volume is rapidly rising. The Twiggs Money Flow confirms the stock is under accumulation. We also had a bullish Pocket Pivot signal on Friday, July 28, 2017.

Prices have been consolidating lately and there is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 4.06. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 4.04, a stop order could be placed below this zone.

What is 5G Rollout Schedule With Major Carriers

Cradlepoint published an awesome research report about what is 5G implementation schedules for the major carriers and what technology they will be using.

I will try to summarize the important parts of Cradlepoint’s research report and link to the full report in PDF format below.

What is 5G In 2017?

5G is not like 4G yet and won’t be for a few years.

The 5G trials being touted by network operators are for fixed wireless access only. Thus, 5G initially is only useful for point-to-point, line-of-sight transmission as it can not penetrate buildings and walls yet.

Verizon stopped digging trenches 10 years ago for its Verizon FiOS (Fiber Optic Service), and last year Google discontinued its Google Fiber program. Digging trenches and maintaining wired lines has become cost-prohibitive.

The first use of 5G will be for fixed wireless access. Providers will use millimeter wave, the portion of 5G that works well to pass large amounts of data from one fixed point to another. They also will use 5G as an alternative to fiber connectivity to homes and businesses.

What is 5G Technology?

In order to achieve amazing 5G speeds in the future, the industry will get a lot more complex and use different telecommunications technologies from the past.

5G will encompass many wireless technologies, including 5G New Radio, Gigabit LTE for super-fast speeds; LTE IoT for low power, long battery life, and long-range coverage; Digital TV, C-V2X, or vehicle to anything; and ultra-low latency.

5G will build on the architecture of voice (2G); voice, video, and data (3G); and massive mobile data (4G)—and add massive bandwidth and density, as well as ultra-low latency. 5G also will integrate aspects of WiFi and long-range/low-power networks.

What is 5G Fixed Wireless Access?

The first form of 5G will be implemented with fixed wireless access. Fixed wireless access is having an antenna on the street or nearby building and then beaming the 5G transmission to a nearby antenna on a business or home.

In other words, the first deployments of 5G are meant to replace fiber, cable, and DSL for last-mile connectivity into homes and businesses.

What is 5G Rollout Schedule?

True wireless 5G is still years away but the initial deployments of 5G will arrive within the next year.

By 2019 millimeter wave will be combined with sub-6 GHz spectrum—including all current LTE and WiFi for failover/failback with ubiquitous coverage indoors and out. New sub-6 GHz spectrum will be available as well, including unlicensed 3.5 GHz CBRS and 5 GHz LAA, allowing for increased bandwidth on free spectrum. This important building block will enable network operators to make “true” 5G available.

Tech Stocks To Buy, So Juicy After Recent Pullback

What are the best tech stocks to buy right now? I can’t find a technology stock that doesn’t look like a good buy right now. Technology stocks are reverting to the mean because they got a little too hot last month.

Tech Stocks To Buy

Large players are not stepping in yet and the Twiggs Money Flow is still falling; however, I think STM shows a decent setup pattern especially when you consider that institutional investors have increased their long positions by a whopping 71% over the last 3 months. Prices have been consolidating lately and the volatility has been reduced. There is a very little resistance above the current price. There is a support zone below the current price at 14.3, a stop order could be placed below this zone.

FB presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately. There is a support zone below the current price at 148.42, a stop order could be placed below this zone.

MSFT does present a decent setup opportunity and is one of the better tech stocks to buy. Prices have been consolidating lately. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 68.64. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 68.16, a stop order could be placed below this zone.

AMZN does present a decent setup opportunity. We see reduced volatility while prices have been consolidating in the most recent period. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 985.85. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 953.65, a stop order could be placed below this zone.

GOOG looks a little too much like a falling knife right and so I’m not seeing a good setup at the moment but love the pullback. Price movement has been a little bit too volatile to find a nice entry and exit point. It is better to wait for a consolidation first before taking an entry.

NFLX looks like a falling knife so I don’t see a good entry right now. Price movement has been a little bit too volatile to find a nice entry and exit point. It is probably a good idea to wait for a consolidation first.

When you are looking at which tech stocks to buy one thing is clear, the latest pullback has presented some juicy opportunities.
