5 Toxic Tech Stocks to Sell or Avoid

Since then, RSI has made lower highs, indicating the start of a new downtrend. Since momentum is a leading indicator of price, that's an important signal to watch.

For another take on Qualcomm, it shows up on recent lists of 4 Chip Stock Apple Fans Should Love and 5 Stocks to Store Away for 5 Years.
