From a technical standpoint, this stock triggered a major breakout today off this high-volume move. Shares of B&G Foods cleared some major overhead resistance at around $21 to $21.06 a share in earlier trading, and hit $21.74 at the highs of the day so far. Market players should watch for a sustained move and close above $21.06 to signal that this stock wants to go higher.
The one area of caution for BGS is the current relative strength index reading, which is flashing an 80. Any reading over 70 is considered overbought on a stock. If you see this stock trade back below the breakout level of $21 with high volume, then avoid going long due to the overbought condition.
