Sales growth has ranged from 25% to 58% over the last eight quarters. MPWR stock earns stellar marks in IBD Stock Checkup. It earns an A SMR Rating, which tracks sales growth, profit margins and return on equity.

AI Leader Eyes Real Breakout

Monolithic Power Systems continues to build a deep cup with handle showing a 530.85 buy point.

As last year’s bear market ravaged tech stocks like Nvidia and others, MPWR stock saw a 44% decline within its base. But it has fought back and now is just 5% shy of  the new entry in positive chart action.

Monolithic has bounced off its 21-day exponential moving average. Plus, its 50-day line has moved back above its 200-day benchmark.

The relative strength line has jumped while the stock formed the right side of the base and has now hit a new 52-week high ahead of the potential breakout.
