Buying SIGM

Adding SIGM to the portfolio this morning. I am paying up for this massive breakout. Company has been around since the early 90’s, so the high seems significant to me.

Here is their lifetime chart. I was in the stock earlier in the year on it’s last breakout to all-time highs and got stopped out in the summer swoon.

Here is their Yahoo profile:
