Today's Range: $9.03-$9.7052-Week Range: $6.00-$10.10 Volume: 100,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 134,534 Shares of BDE are ripping higher today after the company said net income was up 122% to $2.59 million from $1.168 million for the period ending March 31. Revenue jumped 19% to $46.41 million from $39.05 million as domestic sales increased 19% to $18.8 million and international revenues expanded 20% to $27.6 million. From a technical perspective, BDE is challenging its 50-day moving average of $9.43 today on decent volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in BDE if it can manage to close above its 50-day, and then trigger a breakout trade above some near-term overhead resistance at $10.10 with high-volume. Look for volume off a sustained move or close over $10.10 that's near or above 134,534 shares. If we get that action soon, BDE will enter new 52-week high territory, and the stock should continue its uptrend towards $11 to $12.
