From a technical perspective, ACHC skyrocketed higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $39.15 with strong upside volume. This move pushed shares of ACHC into breakout and new 52-week high territory, since the stock took out some past overhead resistance levels at $41 to $41.30. Market players can now look for a continuation trend higher in ACHC, if the stock can enter new 52-week-high territory in the near-term.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ACHC as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $39.15 and then once it sustains a move or close above Wednesday's high of $43.55 with volume that's near or above 215,314 shares. If we get that move soon, then ACHC will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $48 to $50.
