Photon Control breaks out, 10-bagger potential
Those great accomplishments are reflected in the stock price of Photon Control. The daily chart shows how the stock broke out in December, at $0.85 on strong volume. Since then, the stock has marched higher on increasing trading volume. That is a great sign of strength.
If the daily chart looks strong, then the weekly chart looks truly spectacular. Photon Control broke out from a 2-year consolidation period. Note how the stock price of Photon Control has a track record to rise very sharply once it breaks out, as seen in the 2013 – 2014 time period.
Based on the financials of this company, we do not exclude it could become a 10-bagger in 2017 – 2018.
