From a technical standpoint, this stock recently triggered a breakout trade once it cleared some past overhead resistance at $19.65. The high of the day today so far is $20.49, and shares are currently trading at $19.50. I would avoid this stock from the long side if it fails to sustain a move and close over $19.65. If we take out $20.49 and $21 with high volume, then this could set up to move back toward its next significant resistance level at $25. If it fails to maintain those breakout levels, then this stock could come under profit-taking since its run so much this year.
