Fidelity National Information Services(FIS - Get Report), a global provider of banking and payments technologies. Insiders are buying this stock into some decent strength here, since shares are up around 20% so far in 2012.

This stock trades at a reasonable valuation, with a trailing price-to-earnings of 19.6 and a forward price-to-earnings of 11.5. Its estimated growth rate for this year is 14%, and for next year it's pegged at 9.9%.

If you're bullish on FIS, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock moves back above its 50-day moving average of $32.88 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that registers near or above its three-month average action of 1,644,760 shares. If we get that move soon, then look for FIS to possibly re-test or take out its recent high of $34.85 a share.
I would simply avoid FIS or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that move back above its 50-day, and then takes out those major support zones at $31.61 to $30.77 a share with heavy volume. If we get that action, then FIS will setup to re-test and possibly take out its 200-day moving average of $29.59 a share.
