4 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

GasLog (GLOG)

This company is an owner, operator and manager of liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers providing support to international energy companies as part of their LNG logistics chain. This stock is trading up 3.7% at $12.19 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 308,000

Average Volume: 110,130

Volume % Change: 334%

From a technical perspective, GLOG is bouncing higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $11.69 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing GLOG within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if GLOG manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.16 to $12.65 with high volume. At last check, GLOG has hit an intraday high of $12.39 and volume is well above its three-month average action of 110,130 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GLOG as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $11.69, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 110,130 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GLOG will set up to re-test or possibly take its 52-week high of $13.34. Any high-volume move above $13.34 would then push GLOG into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible price targets off that move are $14 to $16.

Barnes & Noble (BKS)

This company is engaged in sale of trade books, mass market paperbacks, children's books, bargain books, magazines, gift, music and movies direct to customers. This stock is trading up 6.2% at $15.26 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 3.84 million

Average Volume: 1.23 million

Volume % Change: 421%

Shares of BKS are soaring higher today after Pearson, the world's leading learning company, is making a strategic investment in Nook Media LLC, a subsidiary of BKS. It will pay $89.5 million in cash for a preferred membership interest of about 5% of equity.

From a technical perspective, BKS is bouncing higher here right off its 200-day moving average of $14.54 and back above its 50-day moving average of $15.25 with monster upside volume. This move is quickly pushing BKS within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if BKS manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $16 with high volume.
