Volume: 38 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 52 million

>>5 Telecom Stocks Breaking Out Ahead of Earnings

From a technical perspective, S is ripping higher here and breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $3.48 with decent volume. This breakout is pushing S into new highs for 2012 and is moving the stock within range of an even bigger breakout trade. That trade will hit once S takes out some past overhead resistance at $3.90 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as S maintains a trend over $3.48, and once it takes out $3.90 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $3.90 with volume that's tracking in near or above 52 million shares. If we get that action soon, then S has a great chance of trading up towards the lower end of its gap-down from 2011 near $4.50.

Sprint, as of the most recently reported quarter, was one of David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital holdings.
