From a technical standpoint, this stock is triggering a breakout today now that shares have started to move above some past overhead resistance at $3.79 on above-average volume. That said, this is another very thinly traded stock since only around 5,000 shares trade on an average day. If the stock can manage to close over $3.79, then shares set up to trade back toward its next significant overhead resistance level near $6. This is not a name I would play, however, due to the lack of volume.
