Recent Swing Trade Strategy Examples (KEM, COHR, UCTT, NVMI)

Some very recent swing trades, based on strong up trends and the ‘trending swing trade strategy’ which looks to capitalize by buying during pullbacks. Stocks mentioned: $KEM $COHR $UCTT $NVMI

The three stocks below were top performers over the last 6 months, so you wouldn’t have had to spend very long going through results to find these setups…they were all pretty close to the top of the search results.
