7 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

Uni-Pixel (UNXL)

This is a production-stage company delivering its Performance Engineered Film (PEF) to the display, touch screen and flexible electronics markets. This stock is trading up 23.1% at $13.34 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 446,000

Average Volume: 228,713

Volume % Change: 162%

From a technical perspective, UNXL is exploding higher here right above some near-term support at $10.25 with monster upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of UNXL within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will if UNXL manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance levels at $15 to $16.33 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in UNXL as long as it's trending above $12.50, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 228,713 shares. If UNXL can trigger that breakout soon, then this stock will set up to enter new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $18 to $20.


This company is a provider of electronic, mechanical and mechatronic products for the commercial truck, trailer, bus and passenger car manufacturers. This stock is trading up 2.9% at $64.10 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 1.12 million

Average Volume: 571,731

Volume % Change: 225%

From a technical perspective, WBC is bouncing higher here right off some near-term support at $62 with above-average volume. This stock has been uptrending strongly for the last three months, with shares moving higher from a low of $55.30 to its intraday high of $64.16. During that move, shares of WBC have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now started to push shares of WBC into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $63.57.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in WBC as long as it's trending above $62 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 571,731 shares. If WBC can maintain that trend, and especially keep its trend above $63.57, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $67.50 to $70 in the near future.
