Lenovo ( LNVGY) ($17.93) set its 2013 low at $16.55 on April 18, then traded up to $20.96 on June 4 and that established a trading range for this stock. My weekly pivot is $19.83 with a semiannual risky level at $21.84. The Lenovo laptop I bought in 2007 still works, but I have a Toshiba as a backup. I like my Windows X/P and prefer it over Windows 7 so I am trying to keep my Lenovo operating for as long as possible.
Microsoft ( MSFT) ($34.33) set its 2013 high at $35.78 on June 7 then traded down to $32.57 on June 24. My monthly value level is $32.41 with a semiannual pivot at $33.95 and a semiannual risky level at $35.89. I use a service called AOL Tech Guru and they diagnose and fix computer issues by taking over your PC or laptop. With regards to my Dell Desktop they blamed Windows 7 for my latest crash saying that there's a bug when the computer goes into sleep mode. Now my backup Toshiba has a bug thought to be a virus that prevents receiving Windows 7 updates. My plea to Microsoft is to please continue to support Windows X/P.
