Shares of Skyworks are soaring today after the company reported better-than-expected results for its fiscal second-quarter. Skyworks reported revenue of $364.7 million, an increase of 12% from a year ago, ahead of guidance at $360 million and above Wall Street estimates of $361 million.

From a technical perspective, SWKS has been gapping higher for the past four trading sessions on above average volume. This stock also moved back above its 50-day moving average of $26.67 today, and briefly broke out above some near-term overhead resistance at $27.47.

Traders should now only look for long-biased trades as long as SKWS is trending above its 50-day and above $27.47 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume that's near or above 4.6 million shares as strong. Traders should avoid this stock or look for short-biased trades if it closes back below its 50-day moving average with heavy volume. This stock could easily fill all of those recent gaps if we get that high-volume move back below its 50-day.
