>>10 Top-Rated Tech Stocks That Pay Big Dividends

From a technical perspective, AVID is skyrocketing here back above its 200-day moving average at $8.55 with monster volume. This move has also pushed AVID above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.33 to $9.07.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AVID once it takes out its next major overhead resistance level at $9.50 with high volume. That $9.50 level is the low from when AVID gapped down big back in April from around $10.50. Look for a sustained move or close above $9.50 with volume that's near or above 171,184 shares. If that breakout triggers, then this stock is going to have a great chance of tagging $10.50 to $11.74.

At last check, AVID has hit an intraday high of $9.54, and volume is well above its three-month average of 171,184 shares. Keep in mind that you can also buy AVID and anticipate that breakout, as long as the stock holds is trend over the 200-day.
