Today's Range: $8.34-$9.0652-Week Range: $5.50-$17.66 Volume: 1,264,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 2,042,100 This stock is ripping higher today after RBC Capital analyst Jonathan Atkin raised his rating on the stock to outperform from sector perform and issued a new price target of $11 a share, up from $9 a share. From a technical standpoint, the spike higher in LEAP today now sets up the stock for a big breakout if it can manage to trade above some past overhead resistance levels on high-volume. Traders should now watch for a breakout to trigger if LEAP can take out $9.70 to $10 on volume that's close to or greater than its 2,042,100 shares. If we get a sustained move and close above those levels, then look for this stock to re-test its 200-day moving average of $11.97 or possibly trend much higher.
