>>3 Tech Stocks Hedge Funds Are Buying

From a technical perspective, LRCX is soaring higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $33.59 with monster volume. This move has also pushed LRCX into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $35.08 to $35.99.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LRCX off its next major breakout. That trade will hit once LRCX manages to take out some more overhead resistance levels at $38.17 to $38.99 with high volume. Look for long trades in LRCX as long as it's trending above $36, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 3.3 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then LRCX will setup to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $40 to $42.
