Shares of APOG are trending higher today after the company said third quarter revenue rose by 9% to $190.4 million and net earnings surged 45% to 28 cents per share.
From a technical perspective, APOG is gapping higher here right above some near-term support at $23 with above-average volume. This move has started to push APOG into breakout territory, since the stock has cleared some near-term overhead resistance levels at $23.50 to $23.89. At last check, APOG has hit an intraday high of $24.86 and volume is well above its three-month average action of 173,329 shares. This move has also pushed APOG into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in APOG as long as it's trending above $23 to $23.50 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 178,329 shares as bullish. If APOG can maintain that trend, then this stock has a great chance of tagging $30 in the near future.
