From a technical perspective, SMLP is currently trending above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. This stock has been uptrending very strong for the last six months, with shares soaring higher from its low of $18.04 to its intraday high of $35.40 a share.
If you're in the bull camp on SMLP, then look for long-biased trades as long as this stock is trending above some key near-term support at $32.52 and then once it takes out its previous all-time high at $35.40 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 59,463 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SMLP will set up to enter new all-time-high territory, which is bullish price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $40 to $43 a share.
