Traders should now look to play the next major breakout for SNDK. That trade will trigger once SNDK takes out today's high of $40.45 and then some more overhead resistance at $42 with high volume. Traders should look for long-biased trades once SNDK sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 6.1 million shares.

Any move over its 200-day will bring a previous gap-down from over $50 into play. As of the most recently reported period, SNDK was one of David Tepper's Appaloosa Management portfolio.
