Avatar Holdings (AVTR) is engaged in the business of real estate operations in Florida and Arizona. This stock is trading up 12.3% to $7.05 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $6.42-$7.05

52-week Range: $5.80-$22.74

Volume: 39,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 56,969

Shares of AVTR are soaring today after the company announced it sold 373 acres in Orange County's Horizon West area to a New Jersey investment group for $16.25 million -- down from $4 million six years ago.

From a technical standpoint, AVTR is very close to triggering a major breakout if the stock can manage to sustain a high-volume move and close above some near-term overhead resistance at $6.78.

>>5 Big Stocks to Trade for Gains

Traders watch for a move over $6.78 on volume that's well above 56,969 shares. If we get that action soon, then this stock should set up to re-test its 200-day moving average of $8.11, or possibly trend much higher towards $9 in the coming days or weeks.

Imperial Sugar (IPSU) is a processors and marketers of refined sugar in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) region. This stock is trading up 6.8% to $4.87 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $4.63-$4.94

52-week Range: $4.36-$25.68

Volume: 128,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 332,288

From a technical standpoint, IPSU is starting to find some buying support at $4.36 to $4.54, following the stock's huge drop from its August high of $25.61. The next buy point on this stock will trigger once it moves back above $5.25 to $5.50 on heavy volume. Look for volume on any move over $5.25 to $5.50 that tracks in close to or above its three-month average volume of 332,288.

If we get that action, this stock should easily test its 50-day moving average of $6.06 in the near future. Volume so far today is very weak, so look for that to improve dramatically if you're bullish on IPSU.
