From a technical perspective, THRX is gapping up sharply here with above average volume. This move has pushed THRX into breakout territory, since shares have taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $22.93. Traders should now watch for the next major breakout trade to trigger for THRX. That trade will hit once THRX takes out its April high of $24.29 with high-volume.

Traders should look for long-biased trades once THRX sustains a move or close above $24.29 with volume that's near or above 499,830 shares. If we get that action soon, then THRT has a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its 52-week high of $25.40 in the near future.

As of the most recently reported period, Theravance was one of Seth Klarman's Baupost Group holdings.
