WINDERMERE, Fla. ( Stockpickr) -- Trading stocks that trigger major breakouts can lead to massive profits. Once a stock trends to a new high or takes out a prior overhead resistance point, then it's free to find new buyers and momentum players that can ultimately push the stock significantly higher.One recent example of a successful breakout trade was biotechnology and drugs player Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which I highlighted on Aug. 17 because it was uptrending strong with bullish volume flows. I pointed out how SPRT was holding its gains and was trending very close to taking out some near-term overhead resistance at $10.78 a share. I also mentioned that SRPT was holding key support at $10 to $9 a share.
