The company's revenue for the quarter was up 8% on a year-over-year basis. From a technical perspective, SMA is skyrocketing higher here back above both its 200-day at $7.76 and its 50-day at $8.06 with above average volume. This move has also pushed SMA within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once SMA takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.56 to $8.78 with high volume. At last check, SMA has hit an intraday high of $8.65 and volume has just stated to eclipse its three-month average action of 193,755 shares. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SMA as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $8.06, and then once it clears $8.56 to $8.78 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 193,755 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for SMA to possibly re-test and take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $9.49 to $10.09.
