From a technical standpoint, this stock is currently trading above its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. The stock is now approaching a major breakout if it can manage to sustain a move and close above overhead resistance at $16.87 and above Wednesday's high of $17.25 a share.

If you're bullish on this stock, I would look to get long once it breaks out and closes above $16.87 to $17.25 on heavy volume. Look for volume that's tracking in close to or above its three-month average action of 60,165 shares. If we see a high-volume move over those levels, then look for this stock to re-test its August high of $19.26.
