StockInvest.us, 3 months ago

Veeco Instruments Inc.

The Veeco Instruments Inc. stock price fell by -7.08% on the last day (Thursday, 17th Feb 2022) from $29.25 to $27.18. During the day the stock fluctuated 12.54% from a day low at $26.79 to a day high of $30.15. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 2.68% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day by 448 thousand shares but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly over the next couple of days. In total, 863 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $23.45 million.

On Jan 12, 2022 "Oppenheimer" gave "$34.00 - $38.00" rating for VECO. The price target was set to $31.19+4.1%.

The stock lies in the lower part of a wide and weak rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $26.37 is broken, it will firstly indicate a slower rate of rising, but may also be an early warning for a trend shift.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.96% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $27.95 and $34.62 at the end of this 3-month period.

Veeco Instruments Inc.

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday, January 27, 2022, and so far it has risen 4.82%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Veeco Instruments Inc. stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $28.06 and $28.29. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Veeco Instruments Inc. finds support from accumulated volume at $27.06 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the stock moved $3.36 between high and low, or 12.54%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 6.06%.

Veeco Instruments Inc. holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Strong Buy to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.
