>>10 Top-Rated Tech Stocks Paying Big Dividends

From a technical perspective, AMSC is bouncing hard today right off some major past support zones around $3.50 with heavy volume. This move is quickly pushing AMSC within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once AMSC takes out both its 50-day at $4.17 and its 200-day at $4.22 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once AMSC sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 475,061 shares. At last check, AMSC has hit an intraday high of $4.20 and volume is tracking in strong at 649,000 shares traded. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for AMSC to re-test and possibly take out its July high of $4.96.
