Liz Claiborne (LIZ) designs and markets a portfolio of retail-based brands, including Juicy Couture, Kate Spade, Lucky Brand and Mexx. This stock is trading up 6.9% at $9.20 in recent trading after hitting a 52-week of $9.43 earlier in the day.

Today's Range: $8.50-$9.43

52-Week Range: $4.02-$9.18

Volume: 3.9 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 3.8 million

Liz Claiborne has a market cap of $864.58 billion and an enterprise value of $1.55 billion. The stock trades at a forward price-to-earnings of 36.46. Its estimated growth rate for this year is 12.8%, and for next year it's pegged at 136.8%. The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Liz Claiborne is extremely high at 29.1%.

From a technical standpoint, LIZ has started to flirt with a major breakout today since the stock is challenging some near-term overhead resistance at $9.18. At one point today the stock hit $9.43, but since then it has pulled back to just above $9.

Market players should now watch for LIZ to sustain a high-volume move and close above $9.18 and then $9.72 to trigger a major breakout. Look for volume on a move and close above those levels that's near or above 3.75 million shares. If we see that action soon, look for long biased trades because the odds of a large spike higher in LIZ will increase dramatically.
