From a technical perspective, CLVS soared higher here right off some near-term support at $32.22 with heavy upside volume. This surge in price for CLVS is coming after the stock recently sold off from around $38 to $32.22. Shares of CLVS are now quickly moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if CLVS manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $38 and then once it clears its 52-week and all-time high at $39.63 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CLVS as long as it's trending above $35 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 108,446 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CLVS will set up to enter new all-time high territory above $39.63, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $43 to $45 in the near future.
