Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (ALGM) Just Overtook the 20-Day Moving Average

From a technical perspective, Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (ALGM) is looking like an interesting pick, as it just reached a key level of support. ALGM recently overtook the 20-day moving average, and this suggests a short-term bullish trend.

A well-liked tool among traders, the 20-day simple moving average offers a look back at a stock's price over a 20-day period. This is very beneficial to short-term traders, as it smooths out short-term price trends and gives more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.

Similar to other SMAs, if a stock's price moves above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive, while price falling below the moving average can signal a downward trend.

Shares of ALGM have been moving higher over the past four weeks, up 11.1%. Plus, the company is currently a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stock, suggesting that ALGM could be poised for a continued surge.
