8 Stocks Soaring on Unusual Volume

DexCom (DXCM - Get Report)

This company designs, develops and commercializes continuous glucose monitoring systems for ambulatory use by people with diabetes and for use by healthcare providers in the hospital for the treatment of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. This stock is trading up 3.7% at $13.57 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 533,000

Average Volume: 431,198

Volume % Change: 135%

From a technical perspective, DXCM is ripping higher here right below its 50-day moving average of $13.56 with above-average volume. This stock recently formed a double bottom at around $12.03 to $12.05 and right above its 200-day at $12.01. This move today is quickly pushing DXCM within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once DXCM manages to take out its 50-day at $13.56 and then it clears some near-term overhead resistance at $14.29 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DXCM as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $13.56, and then once it sustains a move or close above $14.29 with volume that hits near or above 431,198 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DXCM will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $15 to $15.48. Any move above $15.48 will then put $15.77 to $16.91 into focus for shares of DXCM.

Dell (DELL)

This company offers a range of technology solutions, including servers and networking products, storage products, services, software and peripherals, mobility products, and desktop PCs. This stock is trading up 5.3% at $10.16 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 37.15 million

Average Volume: 21.16 million

Volume % Change: 208%

Shares of DELL are soaring higher today after a Goldman Sachs analyst raised his rating and price target on the stock. The analyst said that there may be too much skepticism over the personal computing segment. The analyst raised his rating on DELL to buy from sell and increased its price target to $13 from $9.

From a technical perspective, DELL is gapping sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $9.58 with monster upside volume. This stock has been downtrending badly for the last three months, with shares sliding lower from a high of $12.67 to its recent low of $8.69. During that move, shares of DELL were consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of DELL are now moving back above its 50-day and pushing within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once DELL manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $10.75 with high volume.
