Today's Volume: 493,000Average Volume: 366,998 Volume % Change: 185% Shares of HCSG are ripping higher today after the company reported second-quarter earnings that rose 15% as they posted strong revenue growth. >>5 Hated Stocks Set to Soar on Earnings From a technical perspective, HCSG is bouncing hard here right off its 50-day moving average of $19.76 with strong volume. This move has also pushed HCSG into near-term breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some overhead resistance at $20.55. Traders should now continue to look for long-biased trades as long as HCSG is trending above $20.55 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 366,998 shares as bullish. If we continue to see HCSG hold that trend, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its next significant overhead resistance levels at $21.74 to $21.91.
