Micron Technology (
MU) is unlike most of the high-volume names on our list today because it's not an earnings mover. Instead, this large-cap semiconductor stock is seeing huge trading activity thanks to a technical breakout in shares.
Micron has spent the last few months consolidating sideways in a rectangle pattern with resistance at $10 and support at $9. That well-formed rectangle was providing investors with a chance for the stock to bleed off some overbought momentum after rallying more than 100% since the end of November. The breakout above $10 is a buy signal at this point.
