Sanmina-SCI Corporation's shares tumbled on the day the company announced the departure of it's President. A Couple of days later, the company report it's second quarter figures and revenue guidance for the rest of the year. All those events combined sent the stock down enough for it to reach a strong support. Now is probably the best time to open a long position.
