This stock trades at a fair valuation, with a trailing price-to-earnings of 20.16 and a forward price-to-earnings of 15.05. Its estimated growth rate for this year is 23.4%, and for next year it's pegged at 19.6%.

This stock has been trending sideways for the last month and change, with shares moving between $107.99 on the downside and $112.79 on the upside. A move above the upper-end of that recent sideways trading pattern will give shares of DVA a chance to break out and head higher. If you're bullish on DVA, then I would look for long-biased if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $112.79 to $114.93 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 1.1 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DVA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 52-week high of $116.50 a share. Any high-volume move above $116.50 will then give shares of DVA a chance to trend north of $120 a share.
