4 Plays Soaring on Unusual Volume

Today's Volume: 96,000

Average Volume: 84,739

Volume % Change: 50%

From a technical perspective, HMST is spiking higher here right above some near-term support at $22.77 with above-average volume. This move is pushing the stock into all-time high territory, since HMST has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $23.85 to $24. At last check, HMST has hit an intraday high of $24.68 and volume is just starting to surpass its three-month average action of 84,739 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in HMST as long as it's trending near or above $22.77, and then once it sustains a move or close above $23.85 to $24 with volume that hits near or above 84,739 shares. If HMST can maintain that trend, then some possible upside targets are $28 to $30 in the near future.

That trade will hit once SODA manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $40.69 to $41.63 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SODA as long as it's trending near or above $39, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 712,019 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SODA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $44.50 to $48.13.
