4 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

Today's Volume: 313,000

Average Volume: 187,944

Volume % Change: 185%

From a technical perspective, RPRX is ripping higher here back above its 50-day at $14.24 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing RPRX within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once RPRX takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $15.54 to $15.70 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in RPRX as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $14.24, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 187,944 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then RPRX will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 52-week high of $17. Any move above $17 will then push RPRX into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action.

SkyWest (SKYW - Get Report)

This company offers scheduled passenger service to destinations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. This stock is trading up 4.1% at $12.38 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 591,000

Average Volume: 387,444

Volume % Change: 156%

From a technical perspective, SKYW is ripping to the upside here right above its 50-day moving average of $11.33 with above-average volume. This move has started to push SKYW into breakout territory, since the stock has pushed above some past overhead resistance at $11.91.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SKYW as long as it's trending above that breakout level of $11.91 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average volume of 387,444 shares. If SKYW can maintain that trend, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $14.21 to $15.

Macquarie Infrastructure (MIC - Get Report)

This company owns, operates and invests in a group of infrastructure businesses that provide basic services, such as chilled water for building cooling and gas utility services to businesses and individuals primarily in the U.S. This stock is trading up 1.1% at $44.44 in recent trading.
