Figure 1 is a monthly chart and shows how the share price fell from a high of $68.20 in September 2000 along with the dotcom bubble to a low of $11.24 by October 2002. The price then recovered to $43.59 by March 31, 2006, and then crashed with the market meltdown to a low of $3.30 by March 2009.

FIGURE 2: JBL, DAILY

Figure 2 is a daily chart and shows that the share price made a double bottom in June and July 2009. This led to a strong rise from $6.64 to a high of $15.51 by October 21, 2009. The share price appears to have now moved into a flag pattern, and a breakout at $14.26 gives the share price a target of $21.54 (15.51 - 6.64 = 8.87 + 12.67 = 21.54). The moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) shown has given a buy signal. Volume, however, has been falling.

Jabil Circuit is a share that you should place on your watchlist for a future buy. Those with a higher-risk profile could buy at present levels.
