From a technical perspective, GWR is currently trading above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. This stock has been trading inside of a tight range for the past two months, with shares moving between $62 on the downside and $67.95 a share on the upside. A move outside of that range will likely setup the next major trend for GWR. If you're in the bull camp on GWR, then I would look for long-biased trades once it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $67.95 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 400,522 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GWR will have a great chance of trending north of $70 a share. One can look to buy GWR off weakness to anticipate that breakout, and simply use a stop that sits around $63.74 to $63.51 a share. One could also buy off strength once GWR clears $67.95 with volume, and then simply use a stop at round $66 a share.
