From a technical perspective, SRPT is currently trending above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. This stock just came out of a nasty downtrend that took the stock from $47.35 to its recent low of $29.71 a share. Shares of SRPT have now entered a near-term uptrend, with the stock rebounding off that low of $29.71 and moving back above its 50-day moving average at $33.06 a share. That move has started to push SRPT within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade.
If you're bullish on SRPT, then look for long-biased trades as long as this stock is trending above its 200-day at $32.62 or above more support at $32, and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance at $35.49 a share high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average volume of 1.71 million shares. If that breakout hits, then SRPT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $39.12 to $42 a share.
