5 Stocks Spiking on Big Volume

Aruba Networks

Aruba Networks (ARUN - Get Report) 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 - Get Report) 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.
