>>5 Earnings Stocks Poised to Pop

From a technical perspective, SMTC is ripping higher here on above average volume. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a breakout trade. That trade will hit once SMTC takes out its 200-day moving average of $25.11, and then some overhead resistance at $25.50 with high-volume.

Traders should look for long-biased trades off a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 511,614 shares. If we get that action soon, then SMTC could easily tag its 50-day moving average of $26.71, or possibly $27.50 to $28 in the near future.
