Today's Range: $72.97-$73.6852-Week Range: $61.00-$73.23 Volume: 800,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 2.7 million Kimberly-Clark has a market cap of $28.95 billion and an enterprise value of $34.71 billion.

The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Kimberly Clark is very low at 1.3%. From a technical standpoint, KMB has started to flirt with a big breakout trade today now that the stock has moved above some near-term overhead resistance at $72.51 on light volume. Traders should look for a sustained move and close above $72.51 on volume that's near or above 2.7 million. If KMB closes today on lighter volume, then I would avoid upside biased trades for now since the volume isn't confirming that there's big buyers behind the move. Kimberly-Clark is one of 12 stocks in this month's High-Yield Dividend Champion Portfolio.
