Shares of SSYS are soaring higher here after the company posted a loss for its fourth quarter but beat Wall Street earnings estimates and issued a full-year sales forecast that ranged higher than analysts were expecting.
From a technical perspective, SSYS is gapping sharply higher here back above its 200-day moving average of $64.21 with heavy upside volume. This gap up has at least briefly stopped the stock's downtrend over the last month, which took shares of SSYS lower from $84.10 to $60.20. This move is quickly pushing shares of SSYS within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if SSYS takes out its intraday high of $72.69 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SSYS as long as it's trending above today's low of $67.53, and then once it sustains a move or close above $72.69 with volume that hits near or above 835,052 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SSYS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 50-day moving average of $78.08.
