Xilinx's stock is down 2.0% to $36.54 on heavy trading volume. Today's volume of 5.1 million shares tops the average 30-day volume of 3.1 million shares. Spikes in volume can validate a breakout or signify a potential turning point.

Potential upside of 4.3% exists for Xilinx, based on a current level of $36.54 and analysts' average consensus price target of $38.10. The stock should find resistance at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $36.64, as well as support at its 200-day MA of $34.06.

Xilinx, Inc. designs, develops, and markets complete programmable logic solutions. The Company's solutions include advanced integrated circuits, software design tools, predefined system functions delivered as cores of logic, and field engineering support. Xilinx sells its products through several channels of distribution to customers in the United States and overseas.
