8 Stocks Ripping Higher on Big Volume


Epocrates (EPOC) is a provider of mobile drug reference tools and electronic health records to healthcare professionals and interactive services to the healthcare industry. This stock is trading up 6.4% at $11.24 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 77,000

Average Volume: 76,688

Volume % Change: 105%

From a technical perspective, EPOC is gapping up strongly here with above-average volume. This move is coming after EPOC recently broke out above $9.23 with decent volume. Today's action has also started to push EPOC into overbought territory, since its current relative strength index reading is now over 80. Overbought can always get more overbought, so that doesn't mean the stock is due to pullback in the short-term.

Traders should now look for long-biased traders in EPOC once it manages to break out above today's high of $11.60 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $11.60 with volume that's near or above 76,688 shares. If EPOC triggers that breakout, then look for this stock to hit $14 in the near-term.
