This stock has been uptrending strongly for the last two months, with shares moving higher from $8.39 to its recent high of $10.12 a share. During that uptrend, shares of LYV have been mostly making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action.

If you're in the bull camp on LYV, then I would look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $10.12 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $10.12 a share with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 871,951 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then LYV will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $10.99 to $11.50 a share.

This is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of innovative product candidates for the treatment or prevention of a range of infections in hospital and non-hospital environments. Insiders are buying this stock into modest weakness, since shares are off by 10% in the last three months.Novabay Pharmaceutical has a market cap of $35 million and an enterprise value of $22 million. This stock trades at a fair valuation, with a price-to-sales of 4.86 and a price-to-book of 4.60. Its estimated growth rate for this year is -35%, and for next year it's pegged at 11.1%. This is a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $11.88 million and its total debt is zero. The president and beneficial owner just bought 120,000 shares, or about $144,000 worth of stock, at $1.20 per share. From a technical perspective, NBY is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock has been downtrending badly for the last month, with shares dropping from $1.76 to its recent low of $1.05 a share. During that downtrend, shares of NBY have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action.
