>>4 Tech Stocks Set to Shine

From a technical perspective, APKT is ripping higher here with above average volume, and it's started to enter breakout territory above some near-term overhead resistance at $17.96.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as APKT is trending above its 50-day at $17.12 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 2,638,970 shares as bullish. If APKT can hold this breakout, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its next significant overhead resistance levels at $22.41 to $25.

On the flip side, I would avoid this stock or look for short-biased trades if APKT fails to hold this breakout, and then drops back below some major near-term support at $16.30.
