From a technical standpoint, this stock is breaking out today above some past overhead resistance at around $6.47 a share. The next significantly overhead resistance for this stock won't come into play until $8 to $10 a share. That said, the stock is approaching a very overbought condition since its current relative strength index reading is 77. Just because it's overbought that doesn't mean it can't go higher, but it does raise the risk of buying at current levels. The trend is strong here, but it might be a smart idea to buy shares off the next big pullback. As of the most recently reported period, Multimedia Games was a holding in the portfolio of Seth Klarman's Baupost Group.
