Liquidmetal Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:LQMT) sagged to close the day yesterday but has rebounded today with a bump upward. Liquidmetal Technologies is linked to tech giant Apple so does have some exposure risks here but the company has seriously strong tech making a bull thesis pretty easy here.
LQMT made new highs last month and there is every chance that we might see a near term correction from these highs as the shorter-term operators pull profits off the table and close out their long positions. The correction shouldn’t get down to the $0.32 a share mark. Furthermore, a tour is scheduled for LQMT’s facility this month and that will most likely boost the price back above $0.40 with the excitement that will follow the event.
