Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (PPHM) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops and manufactures monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of cancer and viral infections. This stock is trading up 22.2% to 89 cents per share in recent trading.

Shares of PPHM are skyrocketing today in front of its quarterly earnings report, which is due out on July 16 after the market close.

From a technical perspective, PPHM is soaring back above its 200-day moving average of 79 cents with heavy volume, and it's broken out above some near-term overhead resistance at 78 cents. If this momentum buying can continue, then PPHM could manage to trigger more near-term breakout moves. Those breakouts will hit once PPHM takes out $1.01 to $1.14 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in PPHM as long as it's trending above its 200-day at 79 cents, and near its daily highs with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 875,371 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that action, then PPHM could take out $1.01 to $1.14 prior to its earnings report. On the flipside, I would avoid this stock if it moves back below 79 cents with heavy volume.
