5 Stocks Spiking on Big Volume

Aruba Networks

Aruba Networks (ARUN) provides enterprise mobility solutions that enable secure access to data, voice and video applications across wireless and wireline enterprise networks. This stock is trading up 4% at $23.59 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 2.69 million

Average Volume: 2.41 million

Volume % Change: 78%

Shares of ARUN are ripping higher today after Craig-Hallum analyst Rajesh Ghai boosted his rating on the stock to buy from hold, while upping his price target to $29, from $21.

From a technical perspective, ARUN is pushing higher here with above-average volume. This move has started to push shares of ARUN into breakout territory, since the stock has cleared some near-term overhead resistance at $23.19. Shares of ARUN are now quickly moving within range of triggering another major breakout trade. That trade will hit if ARUN manages to clear some past overhead resistance levels at $24.57 to $25.55 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ARUN as long as it's trending above that key breakout level of $23.19, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 2.41 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then ARUN will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $28.50 to $31.37.

Marriott Vacations Worldwide

Marriott Vacations Worldwide (VAC) engages in the development, marketing, sale and management of vacation ownership and related products in the U.S. This stock is trading up 1.4% at $44.88 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 414,000

Average Volume: 220,203

Volume % Change: 211%

From a technical perspective, VAC is moving modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $43 with above-average volume. This move has started to push shares of VAC into breakout territory and all-time-high territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $44.53.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VAC as long as it's trending above $43 to $42.49 with strong upside volume flows. Traders can also key off VAC's 50-day moving average of $41.46 to determine if the stock wants to stay in its current uptrend. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 220,203 shares. If VAC can maintain that trend, then this stock will have a great chance of tagging $50 or higher in the near future.
