This stock trades at a cheap valuation, with a trailing price-to-earnings of 11.06 and a forward price-to-earnings of 9.93. Its estimated growth rate for this year is -9.3%, and for next year it's pegged at 9.4%. This is a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $6.14 billion and its total debt is $3.50 billion.

From a technical perspective, GLW is currently trending above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. This stock has recently crossed back above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, and it's now quickly moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. If you're bullish on GLW, then look for long-biased as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $12.34, and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.99 to $13.09 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 15.78 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GLW will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at $13.85 to $14.29 a share. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $15.35 to $17 into range for shares or GLW.
