>>22 Biopharma Stocks With Breakout Potential
From a technical perspective, STEM is bouncing strong here right off some major support at $1.40 with heavy volume. This move is quickly pushing STEM within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once STEM takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.87 to $1.96 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades once STEM sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 1,573,790 shares. If we get that move soon, then look for STEM to re-test and possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.31 to $2.65. Keep in mind that this stock can be bought off weakness as long as $1.50 to $1.40 holds.

Today's Range: $4.97-$5.29

Three-Month Average Volume: 80,775
Shares of LIVE are moving notably higher today after the company reported third quarter revenue of $0.8 million vs. $1.1 million in the third quarter of last year.
From a technical perspective, LIVE is moving higher here right off some near-term support at $5 with light volume. This move is coming after LIVE was hammered by the bears during the last two months, with shares dropping from $18.58 to its recent low of $4.75.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades once LIVE clears its 200-day at $5.37, and then once it takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $5.71 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 80,775 shares. If we get that action soon, then LIVE has a great chance of bouncing hard back towards its 50-day moving average of $8.50.
Keep in mind that one can buy this off of weakness and anticipate that breakout and simply use $5 to $4.75 as support zones.
