From a technical perspective, NAV is currently trending above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. This stock recently started to break out above its sideways consolidation pattern after shares cleared $35 to $35.90 a share. That move is now pushing shares of NAV within range of triggering another near-term breakout trade.
If you're in the bull camp on NAV, then look for long-biased trades as long as this stock is trending above $35 to $34, and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $37 to its 52-week high at $38.81 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 1.21 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NAV will set up to enter new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $43 to $48 a share.
