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

From a technical perspective, ELLI is ripping to the upside here after the stock briefly traded below some near-term support at $24.61. Volume so far today is tracking in strong and well above its average daily action.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if ELLI can manage to hold a trend above today's low of $23.58 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 500,234 shares as bullish. If ELLI can hold that trend, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its recent high of $29.49.

On the flipside, if ELLI breaks below today's low with volume, then it will likely re-test its 50-day moving average of $20.44. Traders should look to buy ELLI anywhere near its 50-day, since the stock has held that level for over six months.
