The weather isn’t the only thing that’s hot, though!

After a 6% correction, the US stock market is back. Red hot.

Before sharing about this week’s stock pick, let’s review last week’s stock pick: Genuine Parts (GPC).

Review Of Last Week’s Pick Of The Week

Do you remember that I was expecting the share price of Genuine Parts to continue falling?

Its share price had indeed fallen to the price area I was hoping for, ~$157, before heading higher.

Did you catch its shares for an explosive swing trade?

Given that the overall US stock market is still quite volatile, please be more careful by placing your stop loss and take profit levels.

With that, let’s analyze this week’s swing trading opportunity: Qualcomm.
