NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's unusual for a stock to give hints about its direction as an earnings-release date draws near. A stock often will run up to resistance or trade lower into support, but rarely does it break out.Google ( GOOG), which releases quarterly results today, did just that. The operator of the world's most popular search engine has a lot brewing. I'm particularly encouraged at how its Android operating system for smartphones has made enormous inroads in such a short period, opening up another area for advertising revenue. Google TV appears to have great possibilities, too. On Monday, Google shares broke out and through resistance, clearing a major hurdle on both short- and intermediate-term time frames. Well, kind of. Here's the daily chart showing the clean break.
