  • Amkor Technology - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    May 14, 2014 1:31 PM | about stocks: AMKR

    The Chart of the Day is Amkor Technology (NASDAQ:AMKR). I found the stock by sorting the 52 Week New High List for frequency in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Flipchart feature signaled a buy on 2/21 the stock gained 62.32%.

    Amkor is an independent provider of semiconductor packaging and test services. Also, the company a developer of advanced semiconductor packaging and test technology. They offer integrated sets of packaging and test services, which are the final procedures necessary to prepare semiconductor devices for further use. Its customers outsource the packaging and testing of semiconductor chips to the company in order to benefit from the our expertise in the development and implementation.
