From a technical standpoint, PLCE is quickly approaching a major breakout if the stock can manage to move above its 2010 high of $57.63 on high volume.

Market players should now watch for a sustained move and close above $57.63 on volume that's close to or greater than 668,155 shares. If we get that action, then look for PLCE to continue its strong uptrend towards its all-time high of over $70 a share.
