From a technical standpoint, this stock recently broke out above some past overhead resistance at $7.30 to $.7.70 on monster volume. Market players should now look to play the next breakout that will trigger over $8.50 a share on high volume.

Volume today is already tracking in very strong with over 5.36 million shares traded, which is well above the three-month average of 4.21 million. If this stock can get above $8.50, then look for much higher prices in the near future.
