Xilinx's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Xilinx is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $98.00 short put and a strike $93.00 long put offers a potential 51.98% return on risk over the next 20 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $98.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.71 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.29 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $93.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Xilinx is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Xilinx is bullish.
The RSI indicator is above 80 which suggests that the stock is in overbought territory.

4 Top Stock Trades for Monday: UBER, NFLX, XLNX, AMD
Fri, 20 Dec 2019 20:46:44 +0000
U.S. equities made another new high on Friday — and no, I didn't just copy and paste that from every other day this week. That said, it's pretty clear bulls are in control at the moment. Let's look at a few top stock trades for Monday, the last full trading day before the holidays. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Uber (UBER)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comIt's a Christmas miracle, with Uber (NYSE:UBER) finally putting together some bullish developments.Earlier this month, the stock notched a higher low, allowing us to draw an uptrend mark (purple line) on the chart. Then it pushed through the 50-day moving average and the $30 level.InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsObviously the stock still has a lot to prove, but it's making positive steps. It's also a great example of why traders should keep an open mind and do their best to approach each stock without a bias. * 7 Vaping Stocks to Get into Ahead of the Crowd If Uber can stay above $30, the 61.8% retracement at $33.79 may be the next stop. On a move below $30 and the 50-day moving average, see if uptrend support buoys the name. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Netflix (NFLX)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comMan, Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) has been on a tear lately. Just earlier this month, it was flirting with a breakdown below $290. Now up near $336, the rally has added almost $50 to the stock price.Is it running out of gas?Earlier this year, the $340 level was big-time support, along with the 200-day moving average. NFLX didn't have much trouble reclaiming the latter, but as it nears the former in an overbought condition, prudent bulls are surely raising stops and booking some profits.If NFLX surges through $340, a gap-fill up near $360 will surely be bulls' preferred target. If $340 is resistance, see if the 200-day moving average acts as support. Below puts uptrend support in play. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Xilinx (XLNX)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comNot one we visit with often, but Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX) was popping up on traders' radars Friday.After breaking out over downtrend resistance earlier this month, shares have been consolidating in a tight range between $96 and $97.50. Moving out of it now, it faces a big test of $100.Over that mark, and bulls will look to fill the September gap up toward $103, then possibly take shares up to the 200-day moving average.If XLNX can't break out over $100, see that it holds up near its prior consolidation zone (between $96 and $97.50). Below puts the 50-day moving average on the table, and below that, $90 range support could be next. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comAdvanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) continues to make beautiful move after beautiful move. The latest comes on Friday, as shares break out of a bullish pennant and race to new highs.From here, AMD could kickstart another rally, possibly above $45. The higher it goes, the more traders are going to be pushing for $50.On a pullback, though, see that it finds support from the rising 20-day moving average and uptrend support (blue line). Below that and the prior high area between $41.79 and $41 needs to support AMD. Otherwise, it may need more time to consolidate.Until then though, let's try not to get too bearish. The whole market has been strong and being too early to the party — either bulls on a pullback or bears on a rally — can result in a nasty burn to the ego and the brokerage account. They say "don't fight the trend" for a reason.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
