This stock is ripping today after the company reported record quarterly revenue that was up 24% to $132 million, and record EPS growth of 74% at 94 cents per share.

From a technical standpoint, this stock has triggered a big breakout today once shares cleared some near-term overhead resistance at $39.31 and at the 200-day moving average of $39.26. Since clearing those levels, the stock has now pulled back from its daily high of $42.30.

Traders should now watch for the stock to close above the breakout level of $39.31. If we get that close, then look for this stock to make another attempt to re-test $42 to possibly $44.50 in the near-term.

As of the most recently reported period, MTS was a holding in Mairs & Power's portfolio.
