This move has pushed the stock into breakout territory, since it has taken out some major past overhead resistance at around $20.40 to $20.70. Traders should now look for long-biased trades if NWSA is trending above today's high with heavy volume. At last check, NWSA has hit an intraday high of $21.75 and volume is well above its three-month average action. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 16,181,700 shares as bullish. On the flipside, I would avoid this stock if it moves back below those key breakout levels of $20.70 to $20.40 with heavy volume. As of the most recently reported period, News Corp. was one of Bridgewater Associates' holdings and also showed up on in Seth Klarman's Baupost Group portfolio.
